Carmeuse, Engie and John Cockerill to produce e-methane from captured CO2


Carmeuse, Engie and John Cockerill have joined forces on a new carbon capture and utilisation project that will concentrate carbon dioxide (CO2) from an innovative type of lime kiln, combine it with hydrogen and produce “e-methane”.

Solidifying their commitments, the three companies yesterday (10th Dec) signed a joint development agreement for the Wallonia, Belgium-based project that hopes to open new routes for significant carbon emission reductions both in Europe and globally.

The project will demonstrate at industrial scale a first-of-a-kind integrated process by up-scaling and combining available and prototype technologies, such as a new type of lime kiln, one of the world’s largest electrolysers (75 MW) and green hydrogen.

Produced e-methane will be high-quality, suitable for injection into the national natural gas grid. The renewable e-methane can be used by industrial users or as an alternative fuel in the transport sector, thus allowing these sectors to decarbonise.
