New power plants must be able to fit CCS

New power plants must be able to fit CCS
New fossil fuel power stations should have the capacity to be fitted with carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems, the Scottish government has urged.

It is leading a consultation to require new stations which have the capacity to generate 300 megawatts or more to be designed so that in future they could integrate CCS technology.

Energy minister Jim Mather said: "Our energy supply accounts for over a third of our greenhouse gases and reducing those emissions will be crucial to meet our ambitious climate change targets.

"Carbon capture and storage has the potential to cut emissions from fossil fuels by 90 per cent. Any investment designed to last 30 years or more will need to be compatible with our climate change targets."

CCS involves trapping carbon dioxide from industrial processes and storing it. Mr Mather said there was the capacity to store CO2 in the North Sea.

There are currently three energy firms vying for a licence to build a CCS demonstration plant in the UK.

Meanwhile, the EU has announced plans to support 12 such demonstration projects around the union.

If the testing of a new unit 'OZ Injector' is successful then there will be no need for this.
The first proto type will be finalized this week and testing will start soon after wards, if successful these units can be retrofitted to existing the coal, gas, or diesel fired boilers.
This will be the end of using COAL, GAS OR ANY OTHER FUEL OF THIS NATURE.
All you will need is WATER, the best water for the process would be from a new wastewater process, this is the best for make up water and for IT's FUEL.

http://jdbapat.livejournal.com: Thermal power stations are one of the largest contributors to the GHG emissions globally. They also throw huge amount of fly ash, occupying huge land area and create ground water, land and air pollution. The CCS technology should be made available to the countries like India, at affordable cost. The responsibility of the treatment and use of fly ash should be left to the power generation companies.

The OZ Injector is now ready for the next stage.
The unit has been made and is now ready to have electrical and electronic controls made for the testing stage, there should be some results in the next two to three months.
The success of this unit will start a new phase in power production, powering ships with gas turbines and even the possibility being used in aircraft.
Why can't some of these big companies do something like this?
