UK: First Carbon Capture plant opened

UK carbon capture and storage technology took a major step forward as Energy Secretary Chris Huhne launched a test programme in Yorkshire on November 30, 2011. The project - worth more than £20million - is a partnership between industry partners Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE), Doosan Power Systems and Vattenfall and is supported by DECC, the Technology Strategy Board and Northern Way. The technology will capture the equivalent of up 100 tonnes of carbon emissions a day from SSE’s Ferrybridge coal-fired power station. The project is part a £125 million Government-led CCS research and development programme which will run between 2011 and 2015. Over 20 British based companies have supplied components to the Ferrybridge carbon capture plant.
