Oxy Low Carbon Ventures (OLCV) announced it awarded a services contract to Worley for a facility being designed to produce renewable fuels in British Columbia by capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Using Carbon Engineering?s Direct Air Capture and AIR TO FUELS? technologies, the facility is expected to produce up to 100 million litres (26.4 million gallons) of ultra-low carbon fuel annually for the local Canadian market. The DAC-to-fuels facility, to be developed by OLCV and Huron Clean Energy, is expected to be the first commercial-scale project of its kind. When built, the facility?s low-carbon fuels are expected to provide an important new option for hard-to-decarbonize industries, such as marine, air, rail and truck transportation. Transporters could choose these fuels as a method of dramatically reducing their fleets? carbon dioxide footprint without the need for vehicle modification. Worley will provide early front-end engineering and design (pre-FEED) services for the facility and will act as project integrator for the technology. Construction on the DAC-to-fuels project is scheduled to begin in 2023, with the facility anticipated to be operational by 2026. Upon completion of the pre-FEED, the project is expected to move into the FEED and then engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction phase.
