Vattenfall takes yet a step forward in its work with CCS, Carbon Capture and Storage, by joining the Oxycoal UK collaboration. The project aims at developing a competitive Oxyfuel technology suitable for full-scale plant application.The Oxycoal UK project is developing the Oxyfuel technology for capture

of carbon dioxide. This involves burning of coal in a mixture of high

purity oxygen and recycled gas to produce a gas rich in carbon dioxide

that can be purified and compressed for transportation and storage.


has been working with development of CCS technology since 2001, and it

is of great interest for us to become part of the Oxycoal UK project,

one of the most advanced projects in Europe alongside with our own

Schwarze Pumpe pilot plant,” says Göran Lindgren, Vattenfall’s CCS

Project manager.

The Oxycoal UK project is lead by technology

supplier Doosan Babcock and run by a group of industrial sponsors and

university partners. Besides extensive knowledge and experience of

CCS-technology, Vattenfall’s contribution to the project will be about

£330,000 (SEK 4 million).

The project will be running until November 2009, with two years possible extension.


Oxyfuel pilot plant in Schwarze Pumpe was inaugurated in September

2008. During 2008 Vattenfall also presented plans for new CCS

demonstration plants in both Denmark and Germany. The aim is for the

CCS-technology to be commercially viable in 2020.

Earlier this

year, Vattenfall announced its vision to be climate neutral by 2050.

CCS technology is a vital part of our means to achieve that.
