Mitsubishi affiliate bags QAFAC’s carbon dioxide recovery plant order

TOKYO, JAPAN: MHI Industrial Engineering and Services Pvt Ltd (MIES), an affiliate of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) has received an order for a large-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery plant for Qatar Fuel Additives Co Ltd (QAFAC). The CO2, which is to be recovered at up to 500 tonne per day is one of the world’s largest CO2 capture capacities, will be used to increase production of methanol. The event marks the first overseas order for an MHI CO2 recovery plant specifically targeted at raising methanol production. Construction of the plant is expected to complete in October 2014.

The CO2 recovery plant will be built within QAFAC’s methanol production plant near Doha. It will capture CO2 from combustion exhaust gas emitted in the methanol production process which will use MHI’s CO2 recovery technology, KM CDR Process. Although MHI has previously licensed its CO2 recovery technology to many plants around the world, the QAFAC order represents only the third licensing-plus-EPC order for one of its CO2 recovery plants. MHI looks to market its CO2 recovery technology.
