Atlas Copco strengthens Shell biofuel plant with CO2 compression tech

Industrial gases specialist Atlas Copco Gas and Process (Atlas Copco) will supply its carbon dioxide (CO2) compression equipment to energy giant Shell’s 820,000 tonnes per year biofuels facility in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Shell’s biofuel facility could play a key role in supporting the energy transition through its eventual capability of producing enough renewable diesel to avoid 2.8m tonnes of CO2 emissions a year. 

An unavoidable by-product of the plant’s processes, these emissions will be captured and transported through a pipeline before being compressed to a pressure of 42.5 bar by Atlas Copco’s five-stage turbocompressor – a machine capable of compressing 43.5 tonnes per hour of CO2.
