Indian Farmers Fertiliser Co-Operative is using MHI's CO2 recovery process, with its KS-1™ amine solvent, to capture CO2 at its urea manufacturing plant in Aonla, Uttar Pradesh. The system recovers CO2 from the plant's natural gas-fired steam reformer flue gases, after which the gas is compressed and used for urea synthesis. The CO2 absorber captures around 450 tonnes of CO2 a day, and the facility has been in operation since 2006.
