Kairos@C will be jointly implemented by Air Liquide and BASF at their Flanders-based chemical site in Antwerp. By cutting 14.2 million tons of CO₂ emissions in its first 10 years of operation, the future-minded project will make a significant contribution to the European goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050.
Scheduled to become operational in 2025, the project will combine CO₂ capture, liquefaction, transport and storage on a large scale in the North Sea. In addition, it will include several innovative technologies. For example, CO₂ from production facilities will be captured by Air Liquide’s patented Cryocap™ technology, while BASF will use its Sorbead® solution for drying CO₂.
