The Japanese company’s delegation showcased that the study has evaluated the possibility of applying a technology to partially or fully capture carbon emissions at Misr Fertilizers Production Company (MOPCO) and Abu Qir Fertilizers and Chemicals Industries Company (ABUK).
The captured carbon would be transmitted to old oil and gas fields for storage, while converting the surplus of the grey ammonia at the two companies to blue ammonia.
In addition, the study highlighted the importance of establishing a new line at one of the two companies for the production of ammonia to be studied during the stage of the feasibility study.
