Vancouver/Paris, November 21, 2021- Technip Energies (PARIS:TE) and Svante have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further develop Svante’s solid sorbent carbon capture technology and provide integrated solutions from concept to project delivery.
The partnership will explore opportunities in Europe, Middle-East and Africa (EMEA) and Russian Federation markets where Svante’s technology would be selected by end Clients for industrial carbon capture projects, including cement & limestone, blue hydrogen, refineries, petrochemicals, steel, ammonia and pulp & paper facilities. The cooperation will be worldwide for blue hydrogen plants using Technip Energies’ Steam Methane Reformer (SMR) technology.
The carbon-capture facilities will use Svante’s solid sorbent technology to capture carbon directly from industrial post-combustion flue gases as a non-intrusive ‘’end-of-the-pipe’’ solution to produce pipeline-grade carbon dioxide. Svante innovative net-zero technology captures carbon dioxide, concentrates it, and releases it for safe storage or industrial use, all in less than 60 seconds, by using proprietary active capture nano-materials called ‘’solid sorbent filter’’.
Through this collaboration, both companies intend to address the critical need of lowering the capital cost of the capture of the carbon dioxide emitted from industrial production in order to achieve the world’s net-zero carbon goals required to stabilize the climate. Leaders from industry, financial sectors and government agree on the enormity of the challenge and the critical need to deploy more than 2,000 carbon capture and carbon removal plants by 2040. This is equivalent to put in operations about 2 plants a week over the next 20 years.
Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, said: ‘’We are glad to collaborate with Svante on their emergent carbon capture technology for the decarbonization of hard-to-abate industries by leveraging our expertise in technology co-development and integration as well as design, procurement and construction of carbon capture plants. This partnership clearly reflects the significant role of industrial-scale technologies to accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon society.’’
Claude Letourneau, President and CEO of Svante, said: “This partnership with Technip Energies will allow us to focus our development effort in building a scalable supply chain for active capture materials to address a broad carbon capture and removal solutions offering at Gigaton scale. Svante is currently expanding its commercial filter manufacturing facility in Canada. By the end of 2023, the new facility will have an annual capacity to deliver filter modules capable of removing 3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year or the equivalent of project delivery of 3 world-scale carbon capture plants of 1 million tonnes per year’’.

Svante offers companies in emissions-intensive industries a viable way to capture large-scale CO2 emissions from existing infrastructure, either for safe storage or to be used for further industrial use in a closed loop. With the ability to capture CO2 directly from industrial sources at less than half the capital cost of existing solutions, Svante makes industrial-scale carbon capture a reality. Svante’s technology is currently being deployed in the field at pilot plant-scale by industry leaders in the energy and cement manufacturing sectors. The CO2MENT Pilot Plant Project – a partnership between Lafarge (Holcim) and TOTAL Energies – is operating a 1 tonne per day (TPD) plant in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada that will re-inject captured CO2 into concrete, while the construction and commissioning of a 30 TPD demonstration plant was completed in 2019 at an industrial facility in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, Canada. A 25 TPD demonstration plant is currently under design and construction at Chevron U.S.A. located near Bakersfield, California. In addition, several feasibility studies for commercial scale carbon capture projects ranging from 500 to 4,500 TPD are underway in North America and Europe.
Svante has attracted more than USD$195 million in investment since it was founded in 2007 including the recent CDN$25 million investment from the Government of Canada’s Strategic Innovation Fund. Svante is building scalable supply chain for active capture materials to address a broad carbon capture and removal solutions offering at Gigaton scale. Svante’s Board of Directors includes Nobel Laureate and former Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, and Chairman Steven Berkenfeld, former Head of Industrial & Cleantech Practice at Barclays Capital.
