Development of the next generation of carbon capture technologies is seen as crucial to helping the UK meet its 2050 climate change targets. The ETI is working with Costain to deliver the project which will see a carbon capture pilot plant capable of capturing 95% of carbon dioxide emissions designed, built, operated and tested by the middle of 2015. The project is aimed at pre-combustion carbon capture applications, involving CO2 removal by physical separation and will be split into two parts.
The first part, lasting 16 months and costing 3.5m, will provide the front end engineering design for the demonstration unit. Costain will work with the University of Edinburgh, and Imperial College, London on the first stage, to help understand and optimise performance of the technology.
The ETI expects to invest 20.5m in the second stage, as the pilot plant is built, demonstrated and the results analysed. Demonstration is a key element to building user group confidence in the capture element. A potential site has been identified for the pilot plant, and will be reviewed and ranked against other options during the first part of the project.
We have invested 3.5m to date in a project with Costain to design a carbon capture pilot plant capable of capturing up to 95% of CO2 emissions from coal fired power stations.
The project is aimed at pre-combustion carbon capture applications, involving CO2 removal by physical separation. Costain has produced a frontend engineering design study for a demonstration unit, working with the University of Edinburgh and Imperial College, London.
