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 publishes Future CCS Technologies report
ZEP has published a report entitled "Future CCS Technologies". The report has been developed following COP21 and the aim of limiting the global temperature increase to well below 2°C. The report analyses emerging CCS technologies and concludes that "CCS is ready for immediate implementation, thus, it is essential that current first-generation technologies are tested in actual CCS projects, to subsequently enable emerging techniques to progress. ".

Reuse of unspent NER300 funds (1)
An important opportunity has arisen to utilise unspent NER300 funds and deliver tangible progress on CCS in Europe. Used intelligently, these funds could make a major contribution towards achieving the targets recently agreed for CCUS by the SET Plan Steering Group. This brief from November 2016 outlines the early recommendations of the Platform for how the unspent funds may be best utilised for CCS.
