  • An industry first: SNC-Lavalin successfully integrates a commercial post-combustion CCUS system into a coal-fired power plant

    SaskPower recently set a precedent when it fired up a commercial-grade carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) system at its Boundary Dam power plant in Saskatchewan. It’s the first time that a CCUS system of this size has ever been retrofitted into a coal-fired plant anywhere in the world. SNC-Lavalin was proud to provide complete EPC and training services for the project’s ...

  • The end of coal – Perhaps Not

    Concerns over greenhouse gas emissions have prompted governments across North America to pull the plug on new coal fired energy plants and to close down aging facilities. The days of coal, at least in North America, may be numbered. But breakthroughs in coal burning and carbon sequestration technologies raise the question is this really the end of coal or a new beginning for ‘clean’ ...

  • No new coal without CCS - Miliband

    A future that curbs emissions from new coal fired power stations, and will see the UK lead the world in the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, was proposed by Ed Miliband today. Setting the UK at the forefront of the global race to decarbonise fossil fuels, he set out to Parliament proposals for the basis on which coal fired power which will be permitted in the future: ...


  • EPA plans to regulate coal ash

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today is proposing the first-ever national rules to ensure the safe disposal and management of coal ash from coal-fired power plants. Coal combustion residuals, commonly known as coal ash, are byproducts of the combustion of coal at power plants and are disposed of in liquid form at large surface impoundments and in solid form at landfills. The residuals ...

  • Industrial Combustible Dust Tragedies can be Prevented

    One year ago, a combustible dust explosion killed a worker at the Hoeganaes facility in Gallatin, Tennessee.  During the same year there were additional two accidents at the plant that have been linked to combustible dust resulting in several additional deaths and injuries. The investigation found that significant amounts of fine iron powder had accumulated over time at the facility and the ...

  • `Self-combustion`: Schellnhuber`s view of the big picture

    From the pioneer days in barracks to the Pope in the Vatican, from the first mathematical equations to cutting edge computer simulations – for three decades, the physicist and political advisor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber has been exploring climate change as a challenge for humanity. Account of the state of research, life story, eco-manifest: all this is his major upcoming book on the climate ...

  • Clean coal technologies markets and trends worldwide

    Coal is expected to continue to be a dominant fuel in power generation due to its low cost and abundance. Nearly 7 billion tonnes of coal were produced globally in 2010, and over 40% of global electricity was coal powered. On a levelized cost of production basis, the global market value of coal-fired electricity exceeded $400 billion. Nonetheless, conventional coal power generation is ...

  • Australia and China sign clean coal agreement

    In an important step towards a greener global future, Australia and China signed a formal international agreement for clean coal research in Beijing this week. The agreement, between CSIRO and China’s Thermal Power Research Institute (TPRI), will see TPRI install, commission and operate a post combustion capture pilot plant at the Huaneng Beijing Co-Generation Power Plant as part of CSIRO’s ...

  • Coal-generated CO2 captured in Australia – a first

    CSIRO Energy Technology Chief, Dr David Brockway, said the milestone followed the Garnaut Report’s recognition that Australia has an important role to play in developing low emission coal technologies such as PCC.“PCC uses a liquid to capture CO2 from power station flue gases and can potentially reduce CO2 emissions from existing and future coal-fired power stations by more than 85 per cent,” he ...
