DMX Demonstration in Dunkirk (“3D” project)

The '3D' project has 3 main objectives: Α. To demonstrate by 2022-2023 the effectiveness of DMX™ a novel CO2 capture process on an industrial pilot plant that will capture 0.5 tCO2/hour from steel mill. Β. To prepare an operational, industrial CCS unit in Dunkirk by 2025. More than 1 Mt CO2 per year could be captured on ArcelorMittal blast furnace gas and stored in a North Sea geological storage. C. To explore the potentiality of a future Dunkirk-North Sea CCS Cluster which could have a capacity of more than 10 MtCO2 per year captured and stored in the North Sea by 2035.
