Munich/Germany – The 1,5000 tons/day facility is the first carbon capture and utilization (CCU) project of this size to be realized in Saudi Arabia and upon completion in 2015 the biggest of its kind in the world. It will compresss and purify raw carbon dioxide from two nearby ethylene glycol plants for local Sabic methanol and urea production sites. In addition, the plant will also be capable of producing 200 tons of liquid CO2 per day with food grade quality which will be stored and thereafter supplied by truck to the beverage and food industry.
