Topsoe has been selected by Essar Oil UK to provide technology for its carbon capture facility in Stanlow, North West England. Topsoe will deliver its SNOX™ technology, which removes nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, dust, and other contaminants from flue gas emissions. The technology will contribute to reducing Essar’s CO2 footprint and support their decarbonization targets. The agreement represents a significant step for Topsoe’s development in the UK and demonstrates how the fossil industry can decarbonize itself.

Essar Oil UK plans to invest $1.2 billion to become the world’s first low carbon refinery. The carbon capture facility, combined with an upcoming hydrogen fuel switching project, will reduce the refinery’s CO2 emissions by 95%. Topsoe’s SNOX™ technology is a sustainable flue-gas treatment that removes sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, particulates, and other contaminants from flue gases, recovering sulfur in the form of commercial-grade concentrated sulfuric acid. The process does not consume water or limestone and does not generate waste or ocean discharge.

This partnership between Topsoe and Essar Oil UK highlights the importance of technological solutions in achieving decarbonization targets and reducing carbon emissions. The SNOX™ technology provided by Topsoe will play a crucial role in helping Essar Oil UK become a low carbon refinery and contribute to the global effort to combat climate change.
