In order to establish the variation of operating conditions of the plant and to determine in real time emissions of pollutants at different points, 7 MIR systems will be placed, among others, at the entrance of the SCR DENOx, and at the entrance and the exit of the DESOx system, on stack, etc. ...
La Fundación Ciudad de la Energía (CIUDEN), set up in May 2006, is the main Spanish Government institution involved with the development of programs for capture and geological storage of CO2.
The project is co-financed by the European Union's European Energy Programme for Recovery. It's a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) integral commercial demonstration project, including CO2 capture, transport and storage. This project is one of the 6 similar projects funded under the European Energy Program for Recovery.
This Project is based on a 300 MWe Circulating Fluidised Bed (CFB) supercritical oxycombustion plant, with CO2 storage in a deep saline formation. The technology will be tested first on a new 30 MWth Technology Development Plant (TDP) sited in Cubillos del Sil, close to ENDESA's Compostilla Power Station in the Northwest of Spain, in which it will be scaled to demonstration size (300 MWe)
