Delek US Holdings Selected for Carbon Capture Pilot Project

by Warren Seah

Delek US Holdings has announced that it has been chosen by the Department of Energy’s Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations to negotiate a cost-sharing agreement for a carbon capture pilot project at the Big Spring refinery. This project is part of the DOE Carbon Capture Large-Scale Pilot Project program, which provides significant federal funding support.

The pilot project will implement Svante Technologies’ second-generation carbon capture technology at the Delek Big Spring refinery’s fluidized catalytic cracking unit. The primary objective is to capture 145,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year and transport it through existing pipelines for either permanent storage or utilization.

In addition to reducing carbon emissions, this initiative aims to achieve cost efficiencies and play a vital role in the commercialization of carbon capture technology. To support this goal, Delek plans to establish a carbon capture schoolhouse that will equip both current and future workers with the necessary skills for the ongoing energy transition. It is anticipated that this project will create approximately 200 jobs in construction and operations between 2027 and 2028.
