Objectives
  • Project to accelerate the development of advanced carbon capture technologies for gas-fired power stations
  • Contribution of gas-fired power stations to the UK energy mix appears set to continue to grow rapidly over the next decade
  • Focusing on post combustion looking at designs to be used on new build or retrofitted onto combined cycle gas turbine power stations

This project seeks to accelerate the development of advanced carbon capture technologies for gas-fired power stations.

Abstract The contribution of gas-fired power stations to the UK energy mix appears set to continue to grow rapidly over the next decade. Consequently, in 2012 the ETI launched this project with Inventys Thermal Technologies in collaboration with the Howden Group and Doosan Power Systems to accelerate the development of advanced carbon capture technologies for gas-fired power stations. It focussed on post combustion technologies and looked at designs to be used on new build plant or retrofitted onto combined cycle gas turbine power stations. The project delivered a small scale demonstrator prototype, laboratory work, and a techno-economic assessment to confirm the projected benefits of the technologies for use on gas-fired power stations. Inventys is now working on initial large-scale applications for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).
