Chart Industries and Wolf Carbon Solutions announced on July 29 that they have signed an MoU to deploy cryogenic carbon capture technology along a proposed carbon pipeline running from Iowa to Illinois.
The project will support refineries, cement, steel and petrochemical firms to capture, transport and sequester CO2 emissions from industrial plants.
The proposed Mt. Simon Hub will run from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to central Illinois. Carbon that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere will be captured via Chart CCC™ technology and transported, stored and permanently sequestered in the proposed Mt. Simon Hub carbon capture, transport and sequestration system.
“The partnership between Wolf Carbon Solutions and Chart is a meaningful step forward for improving the carbon footprint of the Midwest United States,” stated Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO and President. “The carbon capture and storage projects being jointly developed will help facility owners and operators reach their greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, in particularly hard to abate industries.”
“Wolf is excited to partner with Chart, an established global cryogenic engineering and manufacturing company and leader in carbon capture technology,” stated David Schmunk, Wolf’s President. “Wolf’s infrastructure and Chart’s technology bring a complementary, unmatched service offering to accelerate the decarbonization needs of the industrial Midwest U.S.”
