CALLIDE OXYFUEL project
A LEGACY FOR A CLEANER ENERGY FUTURE
The Callide Oxyfuel Project in Central Queensland, Australia, is a world-first project, successfully demonstrating how oxyfuel and carbon capture technology can be applied to existing power stations to generate electricity from coal with low emissions.
Following the end of its demonstration phase in March 2015, the Callide Oxyfuel leaves a legacy that oxyfuel combustion, linked with carbon capture and storage, is a realistic option for a cleaner energy future.
The Callide Oxyfuel Project has helped create a pathway for the design and construction of large scale oxy-combustion plants with carbon capture. When linked with geological storage, this technology has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions from coal fired power stations by up to 90%.
