Britain to spend £20 million for development of cheaper C.C.S.

Britain is offering up to £20 million ($31 million) in funding for the development of more cost-effective carbon capture and storage technology.

The technological improvements that can get financial support include those that could be incorporated into the supply chain to reduce the cost of future commercial C.C.S. deployment in Britain, an industry estimated to be worth almost £6.5 billion a year by the late 2020's.

The funding competition is part of a wider £125 million C.C.S. research and development program by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Technology Strategy Board, Energy Technologies Institute and British research councils, which will run up to 2015.

Britain separately committed to fund commercial scale C.C.S. projects, under the energy and climate change department's C.C.S. commercialization program, to the tune of £1 billion.

"Carbon Capture and Storage will play a vital role in ensuring we develop a low-carbon energy mix. We are helping to create a new industry in the U.K, and are well placed to become a world leader," said energy secretary Edward Davey, announcing the new competition.

The British government considers the development of C.C.S. crucial in enabling it to meet its emission reduction target of 30 percent by 2020.

The country has invested more than £20 million in a flagship carbon capture project at the Ferrybridge coal-fired power station in Yorkshire in November of last year.

The first operating carbon capture plant attached to a power station in the U.K., the project extracts up to 100 metric tons of carbon dioxide a day from the power station flue gas stream, or 90 percent of the greenhouse gas. – EcoSeed Staff
