US-based Chart Industries has teamed up with Koch Engineered Solutions (KES) to develop carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) solutions.
The duo recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), through which they will collaborate on the development and implementation of Chart’s Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ (CCC) technologies.
As part of the plans, Chart and KES will look at key locations to both deploy and develop the technology.
Ben Gurtler, Commercial Director of Carbon Capture at KES, said the partnership will help both companies to grow their knowledge and better serve their respective customers.
KES’ capabilities include those of Koch-Glitsch, a mass transfer equipment company, Koch Specialty Plant Services, an onsite vessel fabrication and process critical equipment installation firm, and Optimised Process Designs, an engineering, procurement, and construction provider.
These capabilities will complement Chart as it builds and operates an engineering-scale CCC process at Central Plains Cement Company LLC’s cement plant in Sugar Creek, Missouri.

In October 2021, Chart was awarded $5m from the US Department of Energy (DOE) for its Sustainable Energy Solutions Cryogenic Carbon Capture (CCC) technology.
At the time of announcement, Chart said it would use the funds to scale-up its CC system for an engineering-scale CCC process at Central Plains Cement Company LLC’s cement plant in Sugar Creek, Missouri.
Scaling-up will involve the increase in capacity of carbon dioxide (CO2) captured to 30 tonnes per day.
