Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

FS innovates with first BECCS (Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage) project in South America

Friday, June 11, 2021 - 2:00pm

The BECCS system will be installed at FS' Lucas do Rio Verde plant.

Key Points: 
  • The BECCS system will be installed at FS' Lucas do Rio Verde plant.
  • By implementing the BECCS system, the Company will be the first biorefinery globally to have a negative carbon footprint.
  • The adoption of the BECCS system is part of a set of actions established by FS in the Company's six long-term commitments ( FS 2030 Sustainability Commitment ).
  • Thus, FS reuses the waste generated by the production process and post-consumer waste and reduces raw material consumption.

Drax and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Sign Pioneering Deal Towards Delivery of the World's Largest Negative Emissions Project

Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 9:12am

TOKYO, June 10, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - Drax Group and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering, Ltd., part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, have agreed a long-term contract for Drax to use its carbon capture technology, the Advanced KM CDR processTM, in what would be the largest deployment of negative emissions in power generation anywhere in the world.

Key Points: 
  • TOKYO, June 10, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - Drax Group and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering, Ltd., part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, have agreed a long-term contract for Drax to use its carbon capture technology, the Advanced KM CDR processTM, in what would be the largest deployment of negative emissions in power generation anywhere in the world.
  • Drax is already the largest decarbonisation project in Europe, having converted its power station to use sustainable biomass instead of coal, reducing its emissions by more than 85%.
  • By deploying BECCS technology, Drax aims to go further - becoming carbon negative by 2030.
  • Drax is the first company to sign a contract to deploy carbon capture technology at scale in the UK.

Bechtel and Drax partner to explore global opportunities for new build Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

Friday, June 4, 2021 - 3:02pm

Bechtel, a world leader in engineering, construction and project management has entered into a strategic partnership with renewable energy company Drax, to explore options and locations to construct new Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) plants globally.

Key Points: 
  • Bechtel, a world leader in engineering, construction and project management has entered into a strategic partnership with renewable energy company Drax, to explore options and locations to construct new Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) plants globally.
  • By deploying BECCs' vital negative emissions technology, Drax aims to go further, by becoming a carbon negative company by 2030.
  • Drax Group's purpose is to enable a zero carbon, lower cost energy future and in 2019 announced a world-leading ambition to be carbon negative by 2030, using Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) technology.
  • It is also where Drax is piloting the ground-breaking negative emissions technology BECCS within its CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage) Incubation Area.

Pre-feasibility Study Looking to Progress CO2 Capture

Tuesday, June 1, 2021 - 10:42pm

This project is part of a broad study examining the viability of a regional commercial-scale geologic CO2 storage hub in the Southeastern U.S.

Key Points: 
  • This project is part of a broad study examining the viability of a regional commercial-scale geologic CO2 storage hub in the Southeastern U.S.
  • The project would represent a significant scale-up and is a natural progression in the maturation of carbon capture technology.
  • By bringing leadership, vision and experience based on its substantive learnings from both the fully integrated Boundary Dam 3 CCS Facility and its comprehensive second-generation CCS study ( Shand CCS Feasibility Study ), the Knowledge Centre is performing the carbon capture pre-feasibility study of the scenario.
  • The current pre-feasibility study to install post combustion CO2 capture on a Southern Company generating unit is part of the assessment required to confirm one of several point source emitters of CO2 for the storage site.

IDTechEx Discuss If Direct Air Capture Can Really Help in the Fight Against Climate Change

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 - 3:53pm

BOSTON, May 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbon capture technology may be essential in helping the world in the fight against climate change.

Key Points: 
  • BOSTON, May 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbon capture technology may be essential in helping the world in the fight against climate change.
  • Outside of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), which remains highly unproven, this is not possible with point source carbon capture.
  • A potential solution is direct air capture (DAC) technology, which uses carbon capture techniques to strip CO2 from atmospheric air.
  • The technology has generated much excitement around the world, with many hoping it could help to directly reverse the impacts of climate change.
