MHI Receives Large-scale CO2 recovery plant order for Quatar  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; www.mhi.co.jp) has received an order for a large-scale carbon-dioxide recovery plant for Qatar Fuel Additives Co., Ltd. (QAFAC), a major fuel additive producer in Qatar, through MHI Industrial Engineering & Services Private Ltd. (MIES), an MHI engineering business affiliate headquartered in Singapore. The CO2, which is to be recovered at up to 500 ton/d — one of the world’s largest CO2 capture capacities — will be used to increase production of methanol. The event marks the first overseas order for an MHI CO2 recovery plant specifically targeted at raising methanol production. Construction of the plant is slated for completion in October 2014. The CO2 recovery plant, which will be built within QAFAC’s methanol production plant near Doha, Qatar’s capital city, will capture CO2 from combustion exhaust gas emitted in the methanol production process. The CO2 separated and recovered from the fluegas using MHI’s proprietary KS-1 solvent will be provided as feedstock for boosting methanol production. In conjunction with plant order, MHI will license its CO2 recovery technology to QAFAC through MIES. MIES will be responsible for engineering, procurement…
