Britain’s first CCS project goes live at Ferrybridge

The largest UK Carbon Capture Storage project has opend at SSE’s Ferrybridge Power Station in West Yorkshire.

The project is the first of it’s size to be integrated into a live power plant in the UK. It aims to capture 100 tones of carbon dioxide per day from the equivalent 5 megawatts of coal fired generating capacity. This project aims to bridge the gap between various pilot schemes that are underway, and a full commercial size development that is envisaged by government.

The scheme will be monitored by both the Environment Agency and the Health and Safety Executive. Concerns about the safety of CCS technology have been raised around the world – see article 27.09.11 ‘German Upper House rejects Carbon Capture Law.’
