Energy from Waste will almost double capacity in the near future, with carbon emissions already exceeding the cement and chemical industries. But could this boom and a unique set of advantages help it drive the development and deployment of a technology likely to be essential to meeting our climate change targets – Carbon Capture and Storage?
Energy from Waste (EfW) plants are on track to emit around 20 Mte CO2 per year in the near future, with existing, proposed and under-construction facilities. Preliminary analysis on the potential of fitting Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage to EfW plants, show the cost of the technology as a means of emissions abatement is competitive with other industrial abatement options.
A new report by Energy Systems Catapult has found Net Zero by 2050 is possible if the UK supports innovation and scale-up across three essential areas – Low Carbon Technology, Land Use and Lifestyle.
A new report delivered by Energy Systems Catapult for the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has found that brine production can potentially save the UK £2 billion in the transition to a low carbon economy
A review of the Energy Technology Institutes 10 year bioenergy programme, delivered by the Energy Systems Catapult.
Analysis by the Energy Technologies Institute and others indicates that increasing the sustainable production of biomass resources and the use of bioenergy for energy generation can play an important part in meeting the UK’s 2050 emissions reduction target.
The Committee on Climate Change is reassessing role for bioenergy in the wider energy system. This blog sets out the key messages from a joint response to the call from the Energy Systems Catapult and Energy Technologies Institute.
