By Chart Industries | August 02, 2022

Chart Industries, Inc. (“Chart”) (NYSE: GTLS), a leading diversified global manufacturer of highly engineered cryogenic equipment and technologies for the industrial gas and clean energy industries, is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with Wolf Carbon Solutions U.S. LLC (“Wolf”). Wolf is an affiliate of Wolf Midstream, a $4 billion multi-asset energy infrastructure organization based in Calgary, Alberta.

Through the cooperation agreement, both companies will jointly identify, develop, pursue and execute projects using Chart’s Sustainable Energy Solutions (“SES”) Cryogenic Carbon Capture (“CCC”) technology at mutually agreed upon host sites located along Wolf’s recently announced Mt. Simon Hub carbon pipeline system. The proposed Mt. Simon Hub will run from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to central Illinois. Carbon that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere will be captured via Chart CCC™ technology and transported, stored and permanently sequestered in the proposed Mt. Simon Hub carbon capture, transport and sequestration system. This collaboration will also focus on future phases of the Wolf project including an extension north toward Chicago and east into Indiana and the Ohio River Valley, where refineries and cement, steel, petrochemical and other operational industries are looking to capture, transport and sequester CO2 emissions from their industrial facilities. These various industrial sources of carbon emissions are ideal candidates for deploying Sustainable Energy Solutions’ (SES) Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ (CCC) technology for post-combustion carbon capture.

“The partnership between Wolf Carbon Solutions and Chart is a meaningful step forward for improving the carbon footprint of the Midwest United States,” stated Jill Evanko, Chart’s CEO and President. “The carbon capture and storage projects being jointly developed will help facility owners and operators reach their greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, in particularly hard to abate industries.”

“Wolf is excited to partner with Chart, an established global cryogenic engineering and manufacturing company and leader in carbon capture technology,” stated David Schmunk, Wolf’s President. “Wolf’s infrastructure and Chart’s technology bring a complementary, unmatched service offering to accelerate the decarbonization needs of the industrial Midwest U.S.”
