Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to supply carbon capture tech for Stanlow Refinery


Industrial group Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has been selected as technology licensor for the carbon dioxide (CO2) capture section of Essar Oil’s Stanlow Refinery following completion of a due diligence process.

To be integrated into the proposed Essar Energy Transition (EET) Industrial Carbon Capture facility at the refinery, the technology will enable the capture of an estimated 860,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year to be permanently sequestered into depleted gas fields under the sea in Liverpool Bay.

Construction of the EET Industrial Carbon Capture plant was announced in November 2022 and marks part of the HyNet cluster in the North West of England – selected by the UK Government as a participant in its Cluster Seuqncing Track One Expansion process.

Set to play a key role in Essar’s overall decarbonisation strategy, the plant will capture 40% of all Stanlow emissions, equivalent to taking 400,000 cars off the road.
