Topsoe and Shchekinoazot, a leading Russian chemical firm, have signed an MoU to align their visions and plans for developing blue and green methanol, ammonia, and hydrogen production while lowering CO2 emissions.
During the online signing ceremony, the parties agreed to keep each other informed about recent technological developments and to jointly explore the possibility of implementing Topsoe’s technologies at Shchekinoazot’s plants in order to efficiently and safely produce high-quality chemicals while emitting the fewest greenhouse gases.
Topsoe is now working on many green hydrogen, green ammonia, eMethanol, and efuels projects. The Helios project, announced in July 2020 in NEOM, Saudi Arabia, involves the world’s largest ammonia loop (1.2 million tons per year) supplied by Topsoe.
Over the past 15 years, Shchekinoazot and Topsoe have collaborated on five projects involving ammonia, methanol, and hydrogen processing, using Topsoe’s technologies and catalysts.
