Project Pioneer to capture and store 1 million m.t./yr of CO2

Alstom (Paris, France; www.power.alstom.com) and major Canadian power company TransAlta —along with their partners in the governments of Canada and Alberta and Capital Power, an independent power producer— have created a partnership to construct a large-scale carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) demonstration facility at one of TransAlta’s coal-fired generating stations in Canada. The project is a major step toward advancing the capture of greenhouse gas emissions, with over 500 million euros funded by the Canadian and Alberta governments, and will be named Project Pioneer. Project Pioneer will be located at the Keephills 3 power plant and will use Alstom’s proprietary Chilled Ammonia Process, one of the most promising and potentially lowest cost solutions for safe and reliable capture of CO2 emissions (for process details, see CE, June 2008, p. 13). Keephills 3, a joint venture between Transalta and Capital Power, is a 450 MW supercritical coal fired power plant to be built adjacent to the existing Keephills power plant in Wabamun, Alberta, Canada, about 60 km from Edmonton.   The demonstration project will be able to capture approximately one million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
