Carbon-removal specialist Svante and junior E&P Pilot Energy of Australia are teaming up to provide a “one-stop-shop solution” to capture, transport and sequester CO2 for hard-to-abate industries in the country. Under a memorandum of understanding announced this week, Svante and Pilot will initially target roughly 8 million tons of emissions from the Western Australian Kwinana Industrial Area. The project "has the potential to provide a carbon management solution for 15%-25%" of the area’s reported Scope 1 emissions, the companies said. CO2 will be stored in Pilot’s Cliff Head oil field, which the company plans to convert into “Australia’s first offshore carbon capture and storage project.” Pilot Chairman Brad Lingo said Svante’s novel solid-sorbent-based nanoengineered filters are an “ideal solution” for the Kwinana area’s "hard-to-avoid" emissions. Pilot is leading a clean energy project in the region that envisages future production of clean hydrogen and ammonia.
