New York listed DuPont de Nemours, Inc. (DuPont) on Friday (31 December) has successfully sold off its clean technology businesses, including the scrubber systems provider Belco Technologies Corporation, to an international private equity consortium for an undisclosed figure.

The consortium, which consists of BroadPeak Global LP (BroadPeak), Asia Green Fund (AGF) and The Saudi Arabian Industrial Investments Company, has launched Elessent Clean Technologies (Elessent) on 1 January 2022 to take over operations of the new acquisitions.

Elessent aims to be a global leader in process technologies to drive sustainability and carbon neutrality in the metal, fertilizer, chemical and oil refining industries.

It retains exclusive rights to the technologies, expertise, products, and services including: MECS® sulfuric acid and environmental technologies, BELCO® scrubbing technologies, STRATCO® alkylation technology and IsoTherming® hydroprocessing technology.

“We are excited about what the future holds for us as a standalone company,” said Elessent CEO, Eli Ben-Shoshan.

“The strong global expertise of the Group will accelerate our mission to deliver the technology and tailored solutions our customers need to more efficiently produce cleaner products for the world.”

Note: Derived from the words “element” and “essential,” Elessent helps customers produce, optimize or separate essential elements every day. From the production of carbonless energy to the production of sulfuric acid for the metals and fertilizer industries, and from removal of sulfur from refined oil products to air pollution control, Elessent creates clean alternatives to traditional industrial processes to minimize the impact on the environment while enabling our customers to produce essential elements critical to everyday life.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
