Koch Engineered Solutions LLC (KES) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Chart Industries, Inc., a leading diversified global manufacturer of highly engineered cryogenic equipment and processes for the industrial gas and other industries, positioning both companies to provide full carbon capture solutions to key customers and industries.
The agreement will enable both companies to collaborate in the development and implementation of Chart’s Cryogenic Carbon Capture (CCC) technologies, identifying sites where Chart’s Sustainable Energy Solutions CCC technology can be deployed and developed.
KES’ capabilities include those of Koch-Glitsch, a world leader in mass transfer equipment, Koch Specialty Plant Services, a leader in onsite vessel fabrication and process critical equipment installation, and Optimized Process Designs, a leading engineering, procurement and construction provider.
Some of these capabilities will complement Chart as it builds and operates an engineering-scale CCC process at Central Plains Cement Company LLC’s cement plant in Sugar Creek, Missouri. Central Plains Cement Company LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Eagle Materials Inc.
“With our advantaged capabilities in plant equipment design and services, KES is excited to partner with Chart, an established global engineering and manufacturing company with all mission-critical equipment and technology for carbon capture in a one-stop shop,” said Ben Gurtler, commercial director of carbon capture, KES. “This partnership will enable both companies to grow our knowledge and better serve our respective customers.”
“Working with KES will enable our cutting-edge technology to reach even more potential customers across the industrial value chain,” said Jill Evanko, CEO Chart Industries. “We look forward to identifying and collaborating on opportunities to grow this partnership.”
