Haldor Topsoe and Shchekinoazot have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to synchronise plans on developing blue and green methanol, ammonia, and hydrogen production and reducing CO2 emissions.

At the online signing ceremony, parties agreed to inform each other on the latest technological developments and jointly explore opportunities for implementing Topsoe’s technologies at Shchekinoazot’s plants to efficiently and safely produce chemicals with the lowest rates of greenhouse gas emission.

“Our company’s vision is to be recognized as the global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024, and we are excited to share our groundbreaking technologies with our long-term partner Shchekinoazot,” said Roeland Baan, CEO and President of Haldor Topsoe A/S.

Topsoe is already engaged in several projects to produce green hydrogen, green ammonia, eMethanol and efuels. An example is the Helios project in NEOM, Saudi Arabia, announced in July 2020, which includes the world’s largest ammonia loop (1.2 million tpy) delivered by Topsoe.

“We believe that with Haldor Topsoe’s support we’ll be able to lead the green transformation and be one of the frontrunners who will blaze the trail for the Russian chemical industry. Saving the natural resources is an extremely important issue for all countries. Working for the world’s prosperity, which is one of our key principles, we keep on buying into environmental, ecological, human safety, and climate protection programmes on an annual basis. I’m confident that working together with Topsoe in this area and practical steps towards reducing CO2 emissions are the key to proper development for ecology and industry,” said Boris Sokol, President of Shchekinoazot.
