BASF-Linde cooperation for fluegas CO2 capture

By Gerald Ondrey |

BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) and Linde-KCA-Dresden GmbH (LKCA; Dresden, Germany), a Linde Group (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com) subsidiary, will jointly market licenses and plants for the capture of carbon dioxide from fluegases in the future. The companies today signed the cooperation agreement. Within this cooperation BASF will be responsible for the chemical processes for capturing CO2, while LKCA will provide engineering and design as well as the construction of the facilities. The cooperation will focus mainly on the Middle East region, where the demand for purified CO2 is increasing, for example to raise yields in crude oil production (by means of enhanced oil recovery) and in urea production.   LKCA has extensive expertise especially in the field of planning and building plants that separate and then compress CO2 from flue gases. BASF has vast experience in capturing CO2 from gas flows. The company markets its amine-based gas treatment technology under the brand name aMDEA. For many years this BASF process has been used successfully around the world in more than 220 gas-scrubbing facilities, mainly in natural gas and syngas facilities.
