  • New CO2CRC carbon capture project commissioned

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) research has taken a major step forward with the commissioning of Australia’s most comprehensive post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture research facility,  the CO2CRC H3 Capture Project, at International Power’s Hazelwood Power Station in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley. The project was launched by Victorian Energy and Resources Minister Peter Batchelor ...

  • CCS is moving forward

    Two large components arrived today at the pilot plant for CO2 capture in Buggenum, the Netherlands. Through its subsidiary Nuon, Vattenfall is now actively working with development of three different carbon capture technologies. Important parts of the CO2 capture pilot are put into place today. The pilot is located at the Willem Alexander power plant in Buggenum and will start up operations ...

  • Rotork actuators support the environmental improvement programme at Aberthaw Power Station

    RWE Aberthaw Power Station in South Wales is now one of the most efficient coal fired power stations in the UK, through the use of automation that includes Rotork valve actuation. Aberthaw can generate around 1555 MW of electricity for the National Grid System, which is enough power to meet the needs of some 3 million households. Following the introduction of Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) which ...

  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • Algae PhotoBioreactor`s convert Carbon to Biofuels

    Engineering designers from fishace technologies in Perth, Western Australia have developed a modular APB (Algae Photo Bioreactor) that can be placed at mine sites and power plant facilities to capture up to 85% of greenhouse gas emissions, blamed for global warming. APB’s captured gases include contaminants such as carbon dioxide and nitrous oxides. CO2 produced from the combustion of carbon ...
