fuelled power stations fitted with CCS. The Don Valley project, which he advised is the most advanced project in Europe, is progressing with Samsung having been appointed as EPC contractor and having acquired 25 percent of the company. A contract for £10 million for site preparation is to be let soon with another to build on the completed FEED for £25 million for more accurate cost forecasting. The total project is estimated at £3 billion for onshore activities.
Matthew Hunt of Doosan Power spoke about their work in researching oxyfuel and post- combustion technologies. Their work on the latter is being further trialled at Ferrybridge where different solvents are being tested to achieve improved efficiencies. So far they are 6 months into a 2 year
test programme. He advised that the project used 98 percent of UK supplied equipment. The scrubber tower is 40 metres high and about 2.5 metres diameter made of 316 stainless steel. A full sized tower would not be much taller but would increase in diameter. Therefore it would not be feasible to use expensive 316, so concrete is being considered with a liner.
The Energy Technologies Institute was represented by Dan Gammer who advised delegates of the research programmes which are being funded through them for CCS with £35 million being assigned to various projects. His estimates showed that £42 billion per annum would be

The National Metals Technology Centre is continuing to track

developments in CCS and will report on those developments, in particular identifying opportunities for the supply chain.
