Description

The pilot project plans to deploy an innovative post-combustion carbon capture process at Delek’s Big Spring Refinery Fluidized Catalytic Cracking Unit and transport the CO2 via existing pipelines for permanent storage or utilization.

The project is also expected to decrease emissions of health-harming pollutants, including SOx and particulate matter.

The goal of the project is to help scale up the carbon capture technology and achieve cost reductions to facilitate replication at other oil refineries and industrial facilities.

The project is among four selected in February 2024 by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations for up to $304m in funding for transformational technologies designed to capture CO2. The other three projects are in Kentucky, Mississippi, and Wyoming.
