Carbon capture and storage enabling technologies

Objectives

Validation of performance of oxy-combustion of biomass and carbon removal efficiencies for biomass derived substitute natural gas.

Background

Biomass carbon capture and storage (bio-CCS) is a very attractive long term technology option, since it can effectively deliver electricity with negative greenhouse gas emission. However, there is little understanding of how biomass feedstocks will behave with key CCS technology options. The hub will build upon assessments being carried out by ETI and will be linked to the UK CCS Hub to carry out practical trials and evaluate wider potential.
