Messer joins forces with Sulzer for ‘pioneering’ CCU plant in Austrian Alps


Messer, the world’s largest privately owned industrial gas specialist, is teaming up with a manufacturer of inorganic chemicals to pioneer innovative carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) at a plant in Landeck, Austria, leveraging Sulzer’s advanced mass transfer technologies.

The carbon capture unit, powered by Sulzer Chemtech’s proprietary technology, is set to capture over 50,000 tons of CO2 annually. This reclaimed CO2 will find new life in the food & beverage industry and benefit companies in the surrounding regions.

Messer and its partner are joining forces to transform carbon emissions from calcium carbide production into valuable resources for sectors such as food & beverages, greenhouse fertilisers, and fire extinguishers. 

Uwe Boltersdorf, President of Sulzer Chemtech Division, underscores the commitment to sustainability, stating, “We understand our customers’ imperative to stay competitive while delivering sustainable products and processes. By maximising efficiency, performance, and productivity, our mass transfer components empower businesses globally to embrace more sustainable practices.”
