Vattenfall will build a demonstration plant for CCS at one of the 500 MW blocks of the conventional lignite power plant Jänschwalde in the State of Brandenburg, Germany. The plant will be in full-scale operation no later than 2015, the company said.

The Jänschwalde lignite power plant consists of six 500 MW blocks. For the demonstration plant, one of the blocks, consisting of two boilers, will be equipped with CCS.

One boiler will be newly built with Oxy-fuel technology; another will be retrofitted with post-combustion technology.

Vattenfall's Schwarze Pumpe 30 MW Oxy-fuel pilot plant will be opened summer 2008. The company said a demonstration plant on an industrial scale was the consistent next step.

Vattenfall is cooperating with Gaz de France Production and Exploration in order to test a technology for storing the captured CO2 in a depleted natural gas field in the Altmark.
