The techno-economic feasibility study will be based at the University of Chester's Thornton Science Park in Cheshire. The consortium comprises the Universities of Chester and Sheffield, industrial partners WSP, DNV GL and Costain. It will be led by PMW Technology, who developed the patent-pending A3C process.
The work is co-funded by Innovate UK. (Source: Power Engineering, PMW Technology, GasWorld, 13 Sept., 2017)Contact: PMW Technology, www.pwmtechnology.com;

"And even if the technology can be made to work for gas, it would come at a price that 'would make renewables and nuclear look cheap'. This is in part because of a lack of joined up policy, as Professor Hughes explains: 'Successive governments haven't thought their policies through. The focus on renewables is making CCS -- already a marginal technology -- even less viable.' A coherent strategy could reduce carbon emissions at a fraction of the current cost by switching to gas with the option to install CCS if/when it makes economic sense."
