Air Products to supply oxygen for emission reductions


Air Products has announced it has signed an agreement to supply oxygen, engineering services and related equipment to a project in the UK focusing on the reduction of greenhouse gases.

The project, led by energy company Doosan Babcock, is designed to advance technology that has the potential to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases.

The agreement forms part of the OxyCoal 2 project in Renfrew, Scotland, which aims to demonstrate the benefits of oxyfuel technology for carbon capture on coal-fired power plants. In oxyfuel combustion, oxygen is used instead of air to increase the concentration of carbon dioxide in the flue gas, enabling lower cost carbon dioxide (CO2) capture.

OxyCoal 2 is a significant CO2 demonstration project, with a full-scale 40 megawatt (MW) burner demonstration providing key design and operational data to support the implementation of oxyfuel technology as retrofit, and in new coal-fired power plants globally.
