Drax:Beccs提供更便宜的方式来满足英国气候目标

Drax Group plc released the results of a new study on April 12 that shows its planned bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) projects will save the U.K. more than £4.5 billion ($6.18 billion) over the next decade as the country works to meet its climate goals.

该研究由Drax委托并由能源咨询Baringa委托,评估将BECCS部署到规模的影响,作为实现该国的气候变化目标的一部分。

Baringa发布的报告解释说,轨迹正在考虑其具有CCS的两种现有的630兆瓦(MW)生物质单元的潜在改造。每个单位每股每年可以每年提供400万吨的负排放。2024年将在2024年将要求关于BECCS项目的最终投资决定,以便在2027年允许其中第一个单位上网。

For the study, Baringa considered the role of negative emissions in reaching the U.K.’s net-zero goals, the role of BECC-power given the competing abatement options, and the role of the Drax projects as part of a broader need for BECCS-power.

根据该报告,在Drax的设施中增加碳捕获的资本成本明显低于建立新的BECCS设施。根据Baringa的报告,将现有的生物量单元转换为BECCS也将确保该网站的长期未来。碳支付和权力合同(CFD)将支撑在Drax现场的必要投资,并使每年捕获800万吨二氧化碳。该集团在该报告中表示,该碳捕获量对2050年每年需要每年20至40公吨的二氧化碳捕获量是一个重要贡献,以满足U.K.的目标。

该报告称Drax-Becsss项目“无遗憾”选项,并指出净零的指出,没有BECCS-Power的昂贵更昂贵。“Conversion of Drax’s existing biomass units can pave the way to a substantial program of new build BECCS and other negative emissions technologies, such as biomass gasification to produce hydrogen with negative emissions, with the optimum pathway being refined as technologies mature and costs evolve,” said Baringa in the report. “Drax BECCS can also provide an important ‘anchor project’ for development of the CO2 Transmission & Storage infrastructure as part of the Humber CCS cluster. Additionally, Drax’s consistent demand for biomass can aid in the development of sustainable biomass supply chains.”
