B9 Coal Announces Major New Project
Clean energy pioneer B9 Coal has today announced a revolutionary proposition for efficient, cheap power generation from coal with carbon capture. The UK-based company is bringing together a consortium of major corporations, including WSP Group, AFC Energy and Linc Energy to develop a unique project that will put the UK at the forefront of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.
The 500 megawatt (MW) project is being put forward for the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) CCS demonstration competition. Rio Tinto Alcan’s Lynemouth Plant in Northumberland has been announced as a potential site for the plant. The proposal has the support of the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) and Renew, the organization tasked with commercial energy and environmental technology projects across North East England.
