SSE Secures GBP6.3 mln Project to Trial Carbon Capture

Friday, March 19, 2010

Scottish and Southern Energy, an electric and gas utility, in collaboration with Doosan Babcock and Vattenfall, has been awarded GBP6.3 million by DECC, the Technology Strategy Board and Northern Way towards its 5MW carbon capture trial at Ferrybridge power station in West Yorkshire.
The project, announced in November 2009, will aim to demonstrate the carbon capture element of the process over a two year period. The 100t/d pilot plant, one of the largest in the world, will not operate commercially during the two year trial.
The announcement comes as Yorkshire and Humber was named by energy and climate change secretary Ed Miliband as the first low carbon economic area for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), SSE said.
Ian Marchant, CEO of Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), said: "CCS could contribute significantly to meeting UK and EU climate change targets. The development of this technology needs to be a collaborative process and, by working together, SSE, Doosan Babcock and Vattenfall will gain a better understanding of how CCS technology can be used in the future."
