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 Policy Brief - Energy Union Governance
The European Zero Emission Technology and Innovation Platform (ZEP) welcomes the proposal from the European Commission in November 2016 to establish a Regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union (2016/0375 (COD)). ZEP believes the Regulation could deliver significant EU added value in achieving EU energy and climate goals, including towards meeting the objectives of the Paris Agreement. This brief from May 2017 outlines the recommendations of the Platform for the Governance of the Energy Union.
