DeLille Oxygen Co. has leased two eCOs units for cost-competitive onsite carbon monoxide (CO) production.
One unit is located at the customer site for reliable and flexible over-the-fence delivery of CO. The other will deliver on-demand CO for the rest of the DeLille customers from the company’s headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.
“We are convinced that the eCO solution will support us in delivering an even better customer experience,” said Josh Weinmann, President of DeLille Oxygen Co.
“With this onsite unit, our customer will never have to worry about monitoring stock, ordering new supplies, or dealing with logistics. eCOs produces the volume and quality of gas needed, when it is needed. It can’t get simpler and more reliable than that.”
The new unit will be able to produce 96Nm3/h (SCF/h) CO at ultra-high purity and is expected to be commissioned in the summer of 2020.
The unit is modular which ensures a small footprint and fast installation. The lease and service agreement includes continual operational optimisation and electrolysis maintenance and training of operators.
The eCOs solution reduces CO2 to CO by electrolysis. The process emits only oxygen and can be powered by green electricity from wind turbines or solar panels. In this case, the production is completely carbon-neutral.
eCOs technology can be applied at industrial complexes in order to utilise CO2 as a feedstock to produce valuable chemicals reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.
