Technip Energies selected for carbon-capture project at waste-to-energy plant in Denmark

| By Mary Bailey

Technip Energies (Paris) has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract by VF Carbon Capture A/S for a CO2 capture plant to be connected to I/S Vestforbrænding’s existing waste-to-energy facility in Glostrup, Denmark. 

The agreement between the two companies provides for a mechanism to allow a transition of the contract to an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract. This plant will capture at least 450,000 tons of CO2 per year that will then be permanently sequestrated. Technip Energies will leverage its long-standing alliance with Shell Catalysts & Technologies by integrating the CANSOLV CO₂ Capture System into optimized plant design to guarantee the best achievable energy efficiency and performance.

Marco Villa, COO of Technip Energies, commented: “We are very pleased to be trusted to design and deliver this large carbon capture project for the Waste to Energy Vestforbrænding’s facility. We are fully committed to supporting our Client’s Net Zero ambition and making this project an industrial success. This award confirms the robustness of our carbon capture solutions in partnership with Shell Catalysts & Technologies and our proven project execution track record. We are very excited to continue to grow our footprint in the CCS space and to provide a leading contribution to the decarbonization of the Waste to Energy industry in Denmark”.

Steen Neuchs Vedel, CEO of Vestforbrændings, commented: “This contract on the front-end engineering design marks an important milestone in Vestforbrænding’s journey towards a carbon-neutral future. If Vestforbrænding is announced as the winner of the Danish Energy Agency tender, we can build the carbon capture facility with Technip Energies and ensure it is fully operational by 2026. We look forward to working together with Technip Energies to make this project a success and contribute to Denmark’s efforts in reducing carbon emissions.”

I/S Vestforbrænding is a finalist in the Danish Energy Agency’s first tender for the carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) subsidy pool.
