Air Liquide is sponsoring the 2nd International Oxyfuel Combustion Conference (September 12 to 16) in Yeppoon, Queensland, Australia where the Group’s engineers will present the latest scientific results related to oxy-combustion technology in eight separate papers.
Air Liquide is involved in a number of projects designed to test and validate Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies throughout the world. In Australia, Air Liquide is partner of the Callide Oxyfuel project providing two Air Separation Units and a CO2 Cryogenic Purification Unit (CPU) for a 100 MWth boiler retrofitted to oxy-combustion technology.
In Europe, the Group has partnered with Total on the Lacq project (France) demonstrating CO2 capture, transportation and storage from a 30 MWth gas-fired boiler in a depleted natural gas field. Air Liquide supplies the Air Separation Unit, oxygen burners and CO2 dryers. Twenty months after start-up, the industrial feasibility of oxy-combustion as a carbon capture technology has been validated.
In 2011, Air Liquide signed a contract to provide the CO2 CPU for CIUDEN's Integrated CCS Technology Development Plant (TDP) located near Endesa's Compostilla power plant (Spain).
In North America where over 45% of generated power derives from coal-fired power plants, Air Liquide participates in a major oxy-combustion power plant project incorporating CO2 capture.
Oxy-combustion technology highly contributes to fight world carbon footprint. Thanks to its cost-efficient CO2 capture technologies, Air Liquide is well positioned to play a major role facing environmental challenges.
