Posted by gmarkets on 9 October, 2007

A $5 million pilot carbon capture plant will be built on the NSW Central Coast, the state Government has announced, reported The Courier Mail (27/9/2007, p.B16).

Pilot precendent: The plant will capture greenhouse gas emissions from the Munmorah Power Station, near the Tuggerah Lakes, in a pilot program for a much larger $150 million project. NSW Minister for Mineral Resources Ian Macdonald said the project would be built by Delta Electricity and the CSIRO, and would be completed by mid-2008. “The Iemma Government is committed to clean coal technology and this pilot is the first time we will physically be able to see this technology in action in Australia,” he said.
