Flexible carbon capture CFB technology moves closer to commercialization

By Gerald Ondrey |

Foster Wheeler AG (Zug, Switzerland; www.fwc.com) has signed, together with ENDESA and the Spanish Foundation, Fundación Ciudad de la Energía (CIUDEN), a grant agreement with the European Commission (EC; Brussels, Belgium). The grant agreement stipulates the terms of €180 million of EU funding under the EC’s European Energy Program for Recovery (EERP) to support the carbon capture-and-storage (CCS) technology development applicable to a 300-MWe oxy-combustion power plant in Spain. This is one of six European CCS projects selected for funding under the EERP and is unique in that it is the only such project utilizing circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) technology. The goal of the project is to demonstrate all aspects of a commercial scale supercritical oxy-combustion CFB power plant with CO2 capture, transport and storage in an underground saline aquifer for a wide range of domestic and imported coals, petroleum cokes and biomass. ENDESA’s Compostilla plant site has been identified as the location for this full-scale demonstration plant, based on preliminary positive geological surveys of nearby saline aquifers for storing the plant’s CO2, and the ability to utilize the infrastructure at the existing…
