ArcelorMittal installs the first CCS modules to capture CO2 in Dunkirk

The ArcelorMittal site in Dunkirk (North) will be able to reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The largest steel plant in France has just received the first CO2 capture modules, developed as part of the 3D project (DMX Demonstration in Dunkirk). This project of nearly 20 million euros is mainly funded by the European Union, through the Horizon 2020 mechanism.

4,400 tonnes of CO2 retained per year

The pilot demonstrator, called DMX, aims to demonstrate the efficiency of the CO2 capture process on an industrial scale. The modules were designed by the company ETCI (Entreprise Tuyauterie Chaudronnerie Industrielle) based in Lens (North) and were assembled under the supervision of the company Axens, specializing in petrochemicals and renewable energies.
