Haldor Topsoe’s new vision is to become one of the leading companies across the globe in carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024. The significant change in the company is expected to leave 200 people jobless.
The co-production plant is based on Topsoe’s Imap process and has been successfully operated by the Russian chemical firm Shchekinoazot since the past two years. The facility is capable of co-producing 450,000 tonnes of methanol and 135,000 tonnes of ammonia annually.
The large-scale sustainable project aims to create a hydrogen and sustainable fuel unit founded on the concept of electrolysis. Expected to be complete in three stages, the electrolysis plant once completed will offer a capacity of 1.3 GW.
Haldor Topsoe and Comprimo have announced a global strategic alliance to jointly license the Topclaus sulfur removal and recovery solution. The technology will help customers achieve more than 99.9 % SRE by integrating Topsoe’s proprietary WSA process and Comprimo’s Claus process.
Under a new agreement, Haldor Topsoe will include BASF’s simulation tool, OASE in its Clearview Ammonia connected service. With this, both the companies aim to provide ammonia producers with a better simulation of their plant operations in order to optimise their production.
Claimed to be the world’s largest green hydrogen project, the Neom project in Saudi Arabia will use Haldor Topsoe’s ammonia technology to convert hydrogen into 1.2 million tonnes per year of green ammonia.
