Veolia Carbon Clean joint venture announces carbon capture milestone
- Veolia Carbon Clean joint venture celebrates first carbon capture project milestone in India
- New Veolia Carbon Clean corporate identity also unveiled
19 January 2022: Veolia Carbon Clean - a joint venture between Carbon Clean, a leader in cost-effective carbon capture solutions, and Veolia, the global leader for optimised resource management - is celebrating its first project milestone and revealing a new corporate identity. The joint venture is committed to reducing industrial carbon dioxide emissions and helping India achieve its climate goals through the development of a series of carbon capture and compressed biogas (CBG) projects.
The joint venture's first project milestone is a two-year contract with Tata Steel for the operation and maintenance of the first carbon capture plant for a blast furnace in India. The Jamshedpur steel plant is capturing 5 tonnes of CO2 per day directly from the blast furnace gas and making it available for onsite reuse in a variety of applications. The depleted CO2 gas is then sent back to the gas network with an increased calorific value.
