Technip Energies has been selected to provide Proprietary Technology, Engineering, and Procurement services for Dow’s net-zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions integrated ethylene cracker in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada.

Technip Energies provided an Extended Basic Engineering Package for this new ethylene plant, including the cracking furnaces and the downstream separation section.

This is the first ethylene plant worldwide to be designed to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions(1).

The cracker will utilize clean hydrogen, produced from the cracker off-gas, as fuel gas in the cracking furnaces, which will eliminate direct Scope 1 CO2 emissions. The cracker is designed to produce approximately 1,300 KTA(2) ethylene with five Technip Energies’ proprietary SMKTM furnaces in phase 1 of the project, to be expanded to 1,800 KTA ethylene in a second phase by adding two additional SMKTM furnaces.

Bhaskar Patel, Senior Vice President, Sustainable Fuels, Chemicals & Circularity of Technip Energies, stated: “We are very pleased that Dow selected our technology for their net-zero ethylene cracker in Fort Saskatchewan. By using our proven ethylene technology, combined with clean hydrogen-fueled cracking furnaces design, we demonstrate our ability to decarbonize the ethylene market using innovative technologies and designs.”

Ron Huijsmans, Dow Global MEGA Project Director, and overall responsible for the implementation of the Canadian investment, stated: “Dow is very excited to continue its partnership with Technip Energies, building on decades of joint success. The continuously further optimized SMKTM technology has served us well and is an excellent fit for Dow’s strategic transition to decarbonize and grow.”
