Foster Wheeler to consult on China carbon capture, transportation program

11.06.2012  | 

The World Bank has launched an analytical and advisory assistance program in China in order to build the country’s understanding of, and capacity for, application of carbon capture and storage (CCS). Foster Wheeler’s scope of work is expected to be completed in June 2013.

Foster Wheeler on Tuesday was awarded a contract by The World Bank Group to provide consulting services in the field of carbon capture and transportation in China.

The value of the award was not disclosed and will be included in Foster Wheeler’s third-quarter 2012 bookings, according to the company.

The World Bank said it launched the analytical and advisory assistance program in China in order to build the country’s understanding of, and capacity for, application of carbon capture and storage (CCS).

Foster Wheeler said it will support the program, which is financed by the World Bank under its CCS Trust Fund, to help build know-how and capability for this technology in developing countries.

The main objective for Foster Wheeler under the contract is to strengthen the CCS and transportation know-how of the China Power Investment Corporation (CPI), one of the largest power producers in China, and of relevant government institutions.

Foster Wheeler’s scope of work is expected to be completed in June 2013.

It is probably felt as unrealistic at this moment, but mankind should try to erase the character S from CCS as soon as technologically possible. Pure CO2 produced in any CCS system should be regarded as a potentially valuable product for with an enormous amount of energy is required to produce it. For this very reason, this product should not be stored in the underground for eternity but should be used for the reproduction of fuel or chemicals by using CSP-technology driven chemical processes and chemical looping systems.One of the relevant technologies is the solar energy driven high temperature dry elctrolysis process of CO2 ( CO2 ---> CO + 1/2 O2) which is being developed by the Weizmann Institute of the university of Tel Aviv. (CORC-process; CORC= acronym for CO2 reversed combustion). Once mature this technology allows for instance:
-CO2 to be converted into methane (SNG), Fischer Tropsch liquids, carbon and possibly a vast array of petrochemical feedstocks;
-production of steel and by-product methane from iron ore and limestone/dolomite flux without the need for coal or coke as the common reducing agents.
.
A numer of conceptual Block Flow Diagrams (BFDs) could be provided to start open discussions. Such discussions might be fruitfull for HPI. .
