A new research project is studying the feasibility of using carbon capture technology at biomass CHP plants in Denmark.
The project is a collaboration between Danish engineering, design and consultancy company Ramboll, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and SINTEF Energy Research.
Previous attempts at implementing carbon capture and storage at CHP plants have been abandoned, not least because the technology has been too expensive.
But now the four research partners are underway with a techno-economic study of the feasibility of a future integrated CO2-neutral energy system, where the subsurface is utilized for thermal energy supply and storage, as well as temporary CO2storage.
