2015 situation report on the European Large Scale Demonstration Projects Network. Public summary
Established in 2009, the European CCS Demonstration Project Network (The Network), has been a unique knowledge-sharing effort aimed towards development and deployment of the CCS technology. The Network currently consists of four CCS projects in Europe: former Compostilla (Spain), Don Valley (UK), ROAD (The Netherlands) and Sleipner (Norway).
This is the third report of a series that cover technology progress of different parts of the CCS chain, updates on regulatory developments, summary of efforts related public engagement, costs and knowledge-sharing beyond the Network. Information in this report is based on aggregate information that projects released at the knowledge sharing events as well as through the Information and Experience Gathering (IEG) survey, a Network-developed tool for knowledge sharing.
Situation report 2013/14: European large scale demonstration projects
This second edition of the European CCS Demonstration Project Network: Situation Report 2013/14 includes the findings related to the participating projects from both the knowledge sharing events, presentations, and the internal survey conducted via the Information and Experience Gathering (IEG) questionnaire. The report covers progress made by the projects in capture, transport, storage, regulatory development, public engagement and knowledge sharing within and beyond the Network.
Little has changed from previous reporting for the projects in terms of planning and following timelines. Almost all of them have experienced delays with various permits and with reaching a final investment decision (FID). In 2013, two projects, Porto Tolle and Compostilla received a negative FID. Ciuden, the academic partner of Compostilla project, remains however with collaborative status in the Network. The current timeline for the ROAD project suggests that they could be operating and injecting CO2 by 2017. For Don Valley project this is planned for 2018.
The Network is composed of one oxyfuel power project (former Compostilla), one IGCC power project which may also include gas oxyfuel technology (Don Valley), one post-combustion power project (ROAD) and a gas processing project (Sleipner). Sleipner is the only project currently in operation. All will capture over 1 million tonnes of CO2 per annum, at a capture rate of over 90%. SOx and NOx are quoted by the projects as the most common and expected impurities in the slip stream gas.
Network Situation Report 2015
The EU CCS Project Demonstration Network published its third annual report that covers technology progress of different parts of the CCS chain, updates on regulatory developments, summary of efforts related public engagement, costs and knowledge-sharing beyond the Network.
