DORIS and Axens have entered in a partnership to jointly develop integrated Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) services. The main objective of this collaboration is to provide consulting, engineering and EPCm services for CCUS projects based on Axens technologies.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between DORIS and Axens allows the partners to propose a unique solution to industrial CO2 emitters combining DORIS expertise in full engineering services together with Axens leading carbon capture technologies such as DMX™ and AdvAmine™. This joint offer covers the full CO2 value chain from capture at the point of emission (fuel combustion, industrial processes…), up to the usage or permanent storage solutions, considering the midstream chain of transportation by pipeline or ship as well.
«CCUS is one of the numerous solutions that will contribute to our industries decarbonization. Main challenge for a larger deployment is related to the total cost of ownership of the solution. With Axens technological know-how, we are now able to propose integrated and cost effective solutions for all our industrial clients who are looking at implementing CCUS solutions.»Olivier Benyessaad
DORIS Head of Strategy for EAME APAC region
«This partnership with DORIS will allow Axens to offer a complete CCUS solution from CO2 capture up to the usage or storage, essential for the decarbonization of our industries and a low-carbon society. Axens will leverage on AdvAmine™ 60 years’ operating experience on natural gas sweetening to widely deploy its DMX™ breakthrough technology that remove CO2 from industrial flue gas. DORIS expertise in engineering combined with Axens technology know-how will bring a strong added-value to all industrials willing to reduce their CO2 emissions and this all along the lifetime of a project from feasibility stage to unit operation follow-up.»Rachid Chennit
Axens Vice President Low Carbon Solutions & Gas
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), CCS is a necessary technology to approach the goal of net-zero emissions. The global capture capacity was about 40 MtCO2 per year in 2021. The ongoing pipeline of projects forecasts 220 MtCO2 per year of global capture capacity in 2030, while the IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) is targeting around 900 MtCO2 per year by 2030 and around 5,400 MtCO2 by 2050.
Axens group provides a complete range of solutions for the conversion of oil and biomass to cleaner fuels, the production and purification of major petrochemical intermediates, the chemical recycling of plastics and all natural gas treatment and conversion options.
