Emerson Products Selected for Europe’s Largest Carbon Capture Demonstration Project
Thursday, May 26, 2011
Doosan Power Systems has chosen Emerson Process Management to
control a new carbon capture demonstration project at the SSE (Scottish and
Southern Energy) Ferrybridge coal-fired power station in the north of England.
Development of viable carbon capture technology is central to the UK’s climate
change and energy security objectives, and this project will demonstrate the
technology on a semi-commercial scale over a two-year period beginning in 2011.
Currently under construction, the demonstration project will
be the largest in Europe, capturing 100 metric tons of carbon dioxide per day
-- the equivalent of what might be produced by five megawatts of coal-fired
power generating capacity. More…
