Welsh gas plant captures first tonne of carbon
A pilot project which traps carbon from a Welsh gas plant has successfully captured its first tonne of CO2.
The project captured the greenhouse gas at energy supplier npower’s Aberthaw Power Station (pictured), while the technology has been designed by Cansolv Technologies which part of the Shell Group.
When it gets into full swing, the plant will capture around 50 tonnes of CO2 every day from Aberthaw’s flue gases, which is roughly the amount of CO2 produced by 3MW of electricity generation.
