Leader in cost-effective carbon capture solutions Carbon Clean and leader for optimized resource management Veolia joint venture Veolia Carbon Clean have celebrated its first project milestone. The joint venture's first project milestone is a two-year contract with Tata Steel for the operation and maintenance of the first carbon capture plant for a blast furnace in India. The Jamshedpur steel plant is capturing 5 tonnes of CO2 per day directly from the blast furnace gas and making it available for onsite reuse in a variety of applications. The depleted CO2 gas is then sent back to the gas network with an increased calorific value.India's first carbon capture plant for a blast furnace was commissioned for Tata Steel’s Jamshedpur steel plant in India by Carbon Clean in September 2021. The modular skid mounted unit captures CO2 directly from the blast furnace gas and makes it available for onsite reuse in a variety of applications. The depleted CO2 gas is then sent back to the gas network with an increased calorific value. The 5 tonnes per day carbon capture plant along with its semi commercial use within the steel value chain, makes the Tata Steel Jamshedpur plant the first-of-its-kind in the world within the steel industry.Carbon Clean is committed to reducing industrial carbon dioxide emissions and helping India achieve its climate goals through the development of a series of carbon capture and compressed biogas projects. This kind of affordable carbon capture technology will play a significant role in India’s transition to a low carbon energy future. Veolia Carbon Clean will continue to work towards making cost-effective CCUS a reality in India. Recycled CO2 products are now a multibillion-dollar growing market and carbon capture is a trillion-dollar market, according to International Energy Agency estimates. India has pledged to get 50% of its energy from renewable resources and reduce its total projected carbon emissions by one billion tonnes by 2030.
