Linde, SLNG join forces to explore CO2 liquefaction in Singapore

Gas giant Linde has signed a deal with Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG) which will see the two companies studying the feasibility and development of a carbon dioxide (CO2) liquefaction and storage facility.

To be installed near the SLNG Terminal on Jurong Island, the plant will harness cold energy from the SLNG Terminal to liquefy the CO2 before it’s stored onsite in tanks and transported for utilisation.

The project marks the ‘first such facility of its kind’, according to SLNG, with Tan Soo Koong, CEO, SLNG, adding that it is part of the country’s plan to catalyse new possibilities in the energy transition in step with the Government’s Singapore Green Plan 2030.

“This project allows us to realise SLNG’s cold energy recovery objectives with a two-fold benefit – cold energy recovery with high efficiency, as well as effective liquefaction and storage to reduce CO2 emissions,” he added.

Linde will contribute to the joint venture through its subsidiary, Linde Gas Singapore, eventually aiming to scale-up the project to handle CO2 from additional sources, along with SLNG.
