ENabling Onshore CO2 Storage in Europe (ENOS)

Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2020,

To meet the ambitious EC target of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) needs to move rapidly towards full scale implementation with geological storage solutions both on and offshore. Onshore storage offers increased flexibility and reduced infrastructure and monitoring costs. Enabling onshore storage will support management of decarbonisation strateg ...

ECCSEL aims at gaining recognition as a world-class research infrastructure based within leading European Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) institutions and knowledge centres. It will be due for registration in 2015, forming a legal entity allocating efforts and resources to selected scientific and technological aspects of the CCS chain. ECCSEL will enable high-ranking researchers and scientists fr ...

The objective of the R&Dialogue project is to create mechanisms for effectively tackling the scientific and technology related challenges faced by society by proactively bringing together different actors with complementary knowledge and experiences. The Mobilisation and Mutual Learning Action Plan (MMLAP) therefore forges partnerships between research organisations and different societal actors. ...

Most coal-fired utility boilers are fired with pulverised coal and the use of this technology for power generation far outweighs that of alternatives. The consortium have identified key issues that need to be addressed to pave the way for full-scale deployment of oxy-coal firing. As most previous work has been undertaken at pilot-scale so that, in addition to medium scale demonstration activities, ...

Optimization of Oxygen-based CFBC Technology with CO2 capture (O2GEN)

Start date: Oct 18, 2012, End date: Oct 17, 2015,

The project objective is to demonstrate the concept of the second generation oxyfuel combustion that reduce significantly (50%) the overall efficiency penalty of CO2 capture into power plants, from approximately 12 to 6 efficiency points.One of the main drawbacks of CCS is the additional energy used for operation. This energetic penalty reduces the power plant efficiency, and increases the cost of ...

Enhancing biomass utilization without risking its sustainability is a European energy priority, and can be linked to targets for curbing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020 and 50% by 2050: enhanced energy security and integration with other industrial sectors, such as agriculture, also play a role. Improved use of biofuels and products in advanced biomass conversion units and biorefineries ar ...

The intelligent and cost effective use of CCS technologies requires new strategies to increase the net efficiency of coal fired power plants. Among them, the most promising are summarised as below:- Increase working steam temperature and pressure in new USC power plants (350-370 bar, 700/720°C minimum), and hence increase the severity of fireside operating conditions,- Promote clean coal technolog ...

The proposed project constitutes the second part of a preparatory project aimed at forming a new distributed research infrastructure devoted to world-class experimental research pertaining to CCS. The project will bring the new research infrastructure up to the level of legal and financial maturity. Pursuant to this endeavour, a consortium has been established to provide the techno-economic, legal ...

This project combines the CFB’s intrinsic advantages (fuel flexibility and low emissions) with oxygen-firing for carbon capture and storage (CCS). In oxygen-firing systems the fuel is burned in a mixture of pure O2 and recirculated flue gas instead of air. The absence of air nitrogen produces a flue gas stream with a high concentration of CO2, making it much easier to separate the CO2. CFB technol ...
