Chevron New Energies will install Fluor Corporation’s Econamine FG PlusSM carbon capture technology to slash emissions at its Eastridge Cogeneration facility in Kern County, California.
Under terms of a signed licence agreement, Fluor will develop a process design package, supply proprietary equipment, and provide technical support services throughout various stages of the project.
The technology uses a solvent to capture CO2 from post-combustion sources. The process can capture CO2 from large, single-point emission sources, including large facilities with CO2 capture capacities greater than 10,000 tonnes per day.
Jim Breuer, Group President of Fluor’s Energy Solutions business segment, said that the company is pleased to help Chevron achieve its CO2 reduction goals with carbon capture technology.
“We are seeing significant activity across the globe in carbon capture and are pleased to employ our Econamine FG Plus technology to this important project.”
California’s Gavin Newsom has targets for carbon removal and capture of 20 million metric tonnes CO2 equivalent by 2030 and 100 million metric tonnes CO2 equivalent by 2050 in the state.
When announced, the targets, which were part of a wider plan, were described as “the most ambitious climate action of any jurisdiction in the world.” The plans support California’s goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2025.
