Abu Dhabi, June 12 (IANS) The United Arab Emirates-based sustainable energy company Masdar has signed an agreement with infrastructure developer Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) to implement greenhouse gas reduction solutions at its industrial zone in Taweelah, WAM news agency reported Thursday. Under the agreement, Masdar would develop carbon emission reduction projects at industrial facilities in the Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone (KPIZ).

“We are very pleased to be collaborating with Masdar on this important initiative to capture and reduce carbon emissions from the KPIZ. This will facilitate the development of heavy industry in the zone with limited environmental impact,” said ADPC CEO Ali Al Badi.

“Masdar will be working closely with ADPC to introduce low-carbon technologies to the industry,” said Masdar CEO Sultan Al Jaber.

Masdar is currently developing a major carbon capture and transmission network in Abu Dhabi that would capture carbon dioxide emitted from industrial plants and transport them by pipelines to oil reservoirs for enhanced oil recovery.

KPIZ, which is located between the cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, is a multi-billion dollar project that involves the construction of a large container and industrial port and development of more than 100 square km of special economic and free zones.
