Air Liquide and ArcelorMittal reveal pilot project to capture and recycle carbon


Air Liquide and Luxembourg steel manufacturer ArcelorMittal are partnering to develop the first industrial scale demonstration plant to capture carbon gas from the steelmaking process and recycle it into chemicals.

Located at ArcelorMittal’s steel plant in Ghent, Belgium, the plant will produce advanced bioethanol from waste gases from the steelmaking process. Advanced bioethanol is a second generation of biofuel manufactured from non-food biomass.

Construction of the facility is already underway, and the plant is planned to become operational at the end of 2020. It is expected to produce 80 million litres of bioethanol annually.

Air Liquide Engineering and Construction will provide a technology solution that purified the offgas coming from the blast furnance. These gases will then be injected into a bioreactor to produce bioethanol.
