  • BP and BASF signed a license agreement for carbon capture technology for blue hydrogen production at H2Teesside.
  • BASF’s OASE® 1 white technology will improve energy efficiency and achieve a CO2 capture rate of up to 99.99%.

BP has selected BASF’s carbon capture technology for their blue hydrogen project at the H2Teesside facility. This agreement aims to capture the carbon dioxide generated during hydrogen production at the facility. H2Teesside is set to be one of the UK’s largest blue hydrogen production facilities, targeting significant hydrogen production by 2030. The use of BASF’s OASE® 1 white technology, which has proven success in various plants worldwide, will enhance energy efficiency and capture up to 99.99% of CO2 from the production process.

The carbon capture process at H2Teesside could lead to the capture and storage of approximately 2 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This carbon will be sent for storage via the bp-led Northern Endurance partnership, which aims to capture carbon from various emitters in the region.

Both companies have expressed enthusiasm for this collaboration, with BP highlighting the critical role of H2Teesside in decarbonizing industries and heavy transport in the region. BASF is proud to contribute to reducing CO2 emissions through their established OASE® technology.

In addition to this agreement, BP also signed a licensing and engineering agreement for Johnson Matthey’s LCH blue hydrogen technology to enable the hydrogen production element of the process. These partnerships mark significant milestones for the H2Teesside project as it progresses towards commercial operations planned for 2028.
