Nutrien fertilizer plant to feature carbon capture and conversion tech


A new carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and conversion plant is set to be co-located at Nutrien’s fertilizer operations plant in Kennewick, Washington, US, as a result of a new collaboration between AirCapture and OCOchem.

The firms on Monday (25th April) unveiled plans to design an integrated carbon capture and conversion plant that uses waste steam from the fertilizer facility to extract CO2 from the air and covert it, with water and electricity, to make formic acid.

Once formed, the acid can then be stored, transported and used directly in many industrial, consumer, transportation and agricultural industries, and used to transport green hydrogen safely in an energy-dense liquid carrier.

Already, the project has received great traction, with the US Department of Energy (DOE) having awarded a $2.93m to support the design and engineering of the plant.
