Air Liquide was chosen to supply and build a carbon capture and storage (CCS) system at a 700 MW coal-fired power plant in Queensland, Australia.
Australia’s state owned electricity generator, CS Energy Limited, has modified one of the six steam boilers at its Callide Power Plant to use the oxy-fuel method of CCS. Work at the plant began at the A4 unit in 2008 and now the exhaust gases from the 30 MW boiler are being captured and burned in an atmosphere of pure oxygen. As a result, the output consists almost entirely of carbon dioxide for capture.
