Technip Energies wins major FEED contract for UK’s pioneering carbon capture project at Viridor’s Runcorn facility


Technip Energies (PARIS:TE) has secured a crucial Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract from Viridor for a state-of-the-art Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project at one of the United Kingdom’s largest Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facilities located in Runcorn, United Kingdom. This initiative is set to capture approximately 900,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, significantly contributing to the UK’s carbon reduction goals.

Under the terms of the FEED contract, Technip Energies will be responsible for delivering a comprehensive design that incorporates the Canopy by T.EN solution, powered by Shell CANSOLV CO2 capture technology. This project is among the first to potentially receive funding under the UK Government’s Track 1 initiative for carbon capture projects, positioning it as a pioneering effort in applying CCS technology to Energy-from-Waste facilities globally.

The Runcorn CCS project is expected to remove 450,000 tonnes of CO2 annually from the atmosphere, with half of its capture capacity derived from biogenic sources. It plays a pivotal role in the regional decarbonization strategy by offering a reliable long-term baseload CO2 supply to the HyNet industrial carbon capture cluster in North West England.

Christophe Malaurie, SVP Decarbonisation Solutions at Technip Energies, stated: “With this award, Technip Energies confirms its growing leadership position as an integrated state-of-the-art CCUS solutions provider.” He highlighted the company’s commitment to delivering efficient carbon capture solutions, emphasizing the significant impact this project will have on reducing carbon emissions within the waste sector.
