Shell technology evaluated for carbon dioxide capture project

November 6, 2020

Drax Power Station is the largest, single-site, renewable electricity generator in the UK and supplies 12% of the UK’s renewable power. It uses compressed wood pellets, a form of sustainably sourced biomass, to generate 96% of its power. The pre-FEED study is to investigate the capture of the CO2 from this carbon-neutral process using the Shell CANSOLV® CO2 Capture System when potentially deployed on the first two of Drax’s biomass generating units. TechnipFMC is Shell’s strategic alliance partner for CANSOLV technology and provides engineering, procurement and construction expertise for such projects. The carbon captured would then be transported by pipeline for sequestration under the seabed in the North Sea as part of the bigger Zero Carbon Humber industrial decarbonisation project.
