Paris & Rueil-Malmaison, 7 September 2022,

DORIS and Axens have entered in a partnership to jointly develop integrated Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) services. The main objective of this collaboration is to provide consulting, engineering and EPCm services for CCUS projects based on Axens technologies.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between DORIS and Axens allows the partners to propose a unique solution to industrial CO2 emitters combining DORIS expertise in full engineering services together with Axens leading carbon capture technologies such as DMXTM and AdvAmineTM. This joint offer covers the full CO2 value chain from capture at the point of emission (fuel combustion, industrial processes…), up to the usage or permanent storage solutions, considering the midstream chain of transportation by pipeline or ship as well.

DORIS Head of Strategy for EAME APAC region Olivier Benyessaad said: “CCUS is one of the numerous solutions that will contribute to our industries decarbonization. Main challenge for a larger deployment is related to the total cost of ownership of the solution. With Axens technological know-how, we are now able to propose integrated and cost effective solutions for all our industrial clients who are looking at implementing CCUS solutions”

Axens Vice President Low Carbon Solutions & Gas Rachid Chennit declared that this partnership with DORIS “will allow Axens to offer a complete CCUS solution from CO2 capture up to the usage or storage, essential for the decarbonization of our industries and a low-carbon society. Axens will leverage on AdvAmineTM 60 years’ operating experience on natural gas sweetening to widely deploy its DMXTM breakthrough technology that remove CO2 from industrial flue gas. DORIS expertise in engineering combined with Axens technology knowhow will bring a strong added-value to all industrials willing to reduce their CO2 emissions and this all along the lifetime of a project from feasibility stage to unit operation follow-up”.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA), CCS is a necessary technology to approach the goal of net-zero emissions. The global capture capacity was about 40 MtCO2 per year in 2021. The ongoing pipeline of projects forecasts 220 MtCO2 per year of global capture capacity in 2030, while the IEA’s Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) is targeting around 900 MtCO2 per year by 2030 and around 5,400 MtCO2 by 2050.
