History in the making?
We all remember major historical events, the fall of the Berlin Wall, introduction of the iPhone, operational and technical breakthrough of fracking.
Carbon Capture Sequestration (CCS) history is being made right now with multiple billion dollar projects. In a few short years these projects have gone from concept to reality. We are witnessing a major shift in how we deal with CO2 emissions.
Dow building a net zero cracker
Dow announced a 1.8 million MT per year ethylene cracker to be operational in 2027, will achieve net-zero emissions. It will be constructed on Dow’s site in Alberta Canada and also include CCS for the entire site by 2029.
Dow will leverage the existing Alberta Carbon Trunk Line infrastructure to move the captured CO2 to nearby oil fields for EOR.
