IEA’s report on the capture and recovery of CO2 in the power industry is due out imminently. Fluor Corp was selected by the IEA to conduct the study, under its Greenhouse Gas R&D programme, alongside Mitsui Babcock, Alstom and Imperial College London.

Under the terms of the programme, which got under way in February, Fluor has been working on options for capture from gas fired CC and pulverised fuel plants. Its UK office led the work, with input from its research teams around the world. The company has a strong track record in the field, having already completed CO2 capture projects for clients such as BP and Statoil

The IEA programme is an international collaboration designed to evaluate technologies for reducing GHG emissions and disseminate its results to help in identifying and promoting targets for further R & D projects.
