MHI to provide CO2 recovery technology to UAE firm.

TOKYO, April 11 Kyodo

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. said Tuesday it will provide its carbon dioxide recovery technology to Ruwais Fertilizer Industries, a fertilizer producer in the United Arab Emirates.

Ruwais Fertilizer, also known as FERTIL, will use the technology at its existing urea fertilizer production plant in the Ruwais industrial area located some 250 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi, MHI said.

The CO2 recovery unit will be completed at the end of 2008 and will be able to capture 400 metric tons of CO2 per day.

The technology, which was jointly developed by MHI and Kansai Electric Power Co., recovers CO2 from flue gas emitted during the urea fertilizer production process and provides the captured CO2 as feedstock for urea synthesis. It can recover approximately 90 percent of the CO2 in flue gas, according to MHI.

FERTIL was established jointly by Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. and French oil and gas firm Total SA in 1980. It currently produces 1,340 metric tons of ammonia per day and 1,850 tons of urea for supply to the domestic and international markets.
