Kedzierzyn CCS Project
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Poland and coal.|
The Kedzierzyn Zero-Emission Power & Chemical Plant is a proposed 910-megawatt (MW) carbon capture and storage coal-fired power station in Poland.
The map below shows Kędzierzyn-Koźle, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
The project is proposed by chemical producer Zakłady Azotowe Kędzierzyn and electricity company Południowy Koncern Energetyczny.
The power station is proposed to include coal gasification technology with carbon capture and storage (CCS), and use up to 10% biomass in the combustion process. The project would include a 300 megawatt lignite power station fueled with 1.6 million tonnes of lignite per year.
The project has faced financial difficulties and was cancelled.
