DOE Evaluates Technip and LanzaTech for $200 Million ‘Breakthrough’ Technology Prize

Technip Energies and LanzaTech Global Inc. have been chosen by the U.S. Department of Energy to begin negotiations for funding their joint project to convert CO2 into sustainable ethylene. The potential funding, up to $200 million, comes from the DOE’s Industrial Demonstrations Program, which was awarded under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act.

The companies are working together to develop a new technology that captures flue gas from ethylene crackers’ furnaces and combines it with hydrogen to create ethylene. LanzaTech will use its biorecycling technology to convert recycled waste carbon into ethanol, which will then be transformed into ethylene using Technip Energies’ Hummingbird technology.

Technip Energies CEO Arnaud Pieton emphasized the importance of testing and developing this technology on a large scale to make a significant impact on carbon emissions in the chemicals industry. The process aims to decarbonize ethylene, a crucial building block for various products like plastics, clothing polyester, and PVC pipes.

If awarded, the funding will be used for designing, engineering, constructing, and equipping a commercial-scale integrated technology unit in the U.S. This innovative solution has the potential for replication in ethylene crackers worldwide, with over 40% of existing crackers already utilizing Technip Energies’ technology, including eight in the U.S.
