White Rose gets cash to turn black coal green

Power firm Drax and engineers at Alstom and BOC have bagged a multi-million pound contract from the Government for their carbon capture and storage project. The undisclosed amount of cash will go to a study into the costs and possible hurdles for CCS at their £2 billion White Rose project. The White Rose plans are […]

Two bidders for £1bn CCS project announced

The UK Government has announced two preferred bidders for the carbon capture and storage competition worth £1 billion. DECC said the White Rose project in Yorkshire, England and the Peterhead project in Aberdeenshire, Scotland were chosen from a shortlist of four after “intensive commercial negotiations”.

Railways to use Hydrogen fuel cells

UK railways could soon start using a new range of efficient fuel cell technologies across the rail network. The Hymera fuel cell generator, one of the products approved for use by Network Rail, produces energy by combining hydrogen and oxygen from the air to form electricity and water, creating zero emissions. BOC, a member of […]

UK industry welcomes Government’s CCS competition relaunch

The UK industry has welcomed DECC’s carbon capture competition following “very clear” sets of guidelines this time around. The original Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) project was cancelled last year due to complaints from energy companies. National Grid told ELN of their interest in the competition as the study on CCS now is “more viable” in […]

BOC joins Drax and Alstom CCS project

Industrial gases group BOC is taking a hand in Drax’s and Alstom’s oxy-fired carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, according to reports. The oxy-fired process burns fuel with gas that has a higher concentration of oxygen than air. BOC will provide the air separation technology at Drax’s 426 MW coal fired power station in Yorkshire.

BOC joins Alstom and Drax on CCS project

Specialist gas producer BOC has joined Alstom and Drax as a co-developer on a 426MW oxy-fired carbon capture and storage project. The project will link into the Humber Cluster CO2 transport and off-shore storage network currently under development by National Grid. Peter Emery, Drax’s Production Director said: “We are confident that the combination of major […]

H2 oh!

BOC, an industrial gases and engineering business in the North East, is doubling the capacity of a hydrogen trailer filling station facility over increasing demand for the renewable fuel. Based on Teesside, the unit compresses hydrogen gas into specially constructed road-trailer pumps for distribution. The Teesport facility was built initially to meet demand in the […]

UK’s first hydrogen filling station opens on the M4

The UK’s first hydrogen vehicle refuelling station officially opens today at Honda’s manufacturing facility in Swindon. Anyone with a hydrogen-powered vehicle can charge at the station, at both standard pressures of 350 bar and 700 bar. The facility is a joint venture between industrial gases company BOC and economic development company Forward Swindon. The Swindon […]
