Largest experimental oxy-fuel CFB boiler
O2GEN Project
O2GEN project focuses on one of the most important recommendations of the Zero Emission Platform´s (ZEP) report for the deployment of CCS in the European Union (EU): the use of higher O2 concentrations in oxyfuel combustion reducing the flue gas recirculation and energy penalty. The utilization of Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) oxyfuel combustion enables the reduction of the size of the boiler and the efficiency penalty, resulting in a more environmentally and economically attractive technology.

ZEP Position Paper on Funding CCS Market Makers through the Innovation Fund
In March 2016 ZEP provided detailed recommendations for the design of the Innovation Fund Delegated Act, based on lessons learnt by CCS projects from across Europe including previous NER 300 projects. ZEP has published an updated paper providing input to the Commission on how the Innovation Fund Delegated Act can specifically support the development of CCS “Market Makers”. The Market Maker concept was developed by ZEP in its earlier work on developing a business case for CO2 Transport and Storage and in its “Executable Plan” for CCS. This new work has been undertaken in response to a direct request from DG Clima.
