BASF to jointly develop modular carbon capture solution with South Korea’s GS Construction Co., Ltd.
● One-stop solution covering professional engineering services, carbon capture, project financing, carbon sequestration and utilization
● Contribute to sustainable development and save costs by capturing CO2 from flue gas through BASF’s OASE® blue process technology
September 28, 2022 – BASF and Korea GS Construction Co., Ltd. (GS
E&C) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a strategic cooperation in joint development of modular carbon capture facility solutions. Both parties hope to develop individualized turnkey solutions for customers in various industries through standardized elements to remove carbon dioxide from exhaust gases and reuse or store them.
This modular carbon capture solution combines BASF’s advanced OASE® blue carbon capture process technology with GS
E&C’s professional engineering capabilities enable rapid delivery to customers and optimize capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX). This will effectively shorten the implementation steps of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) projects from concept to actual operation.
BASF’s OASE blue carbon capture technology captures carbon dioxide from flue gas, contributing to sustainable development and saving costs; while GS
E&C will provide one-stop solutions covering professional engineering services, carbon capture, project financing, storage and utilization to help carbon dioxide emissions become carbon neutral.
Sun Yiling, Vice President of Amine, Acetylene and Carbonyl Derivatives Business Management at BASF’s Asia Pacific Intermediates Business Unit, said: “Mature CCUS technology is one of the main options for accelerating global CO2 reduction. BASF and GS
E&C teaming up to demonstrate their commitment to reducing carbon emissions. ”
