Launch of the innovative European “3D” project for the capture and storage of CO2 on an industrial scale 28.05.2019
A consortium of 11 European stakeholders including ArcelorMittal, Axens, IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) and Total, is launching a project today to demonstrate an innovative process for capturing CO2 from industrial activities—the DMX™ project. It is part of a more comprehensive study dedicated to the development of the future European Dunkirk North Sea Capture and Storage Cluster.

The “3D” (for DMX™ Demonstration in Dunkirk) project’s ambition is to validate replicable technical solutions and to achieve industrial deployment of Capture & Storage technology around the world.
CO2 capture and the Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) process Capture consists in extracting the CO2 produced by large polluting industrial units, then putting it under pressure before injecting it into a geological storage area. In post-combustion capture, the CO2 is separated from other gases by absorption in a chemical solvent. Currently, the challenge facing research is to significantly increase the energy performances in this stage, the costliest part of the CSC process, to make this process more competitive.
