clean fossil fuels
Clean Fossil Fuels
  • Technologies which convert coal, gas & oil to energy with reduced emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Existing Plant

  • Low NOx burners fitted to all coal fired power stations to reduce any oxide of nitrogen emissions, which are associated with acid rain
  • All coal used at E.ON sites has a low sulphur content
  • Biomass co-firing projects currently running at all three coal fired stations in the UK.
  • Flue Gas Desulphurisation unit fitted at Ratcliffe-on-Soar which removes 90% of sulphur dioxide from the fumes
areas of research
Areas of Research
  • Cleaner Coal Combustion - Plant efficiency improvements, advanced coal-fired supercritical boilers, fluidised bed combustion
  • Capture & Storage of Carbon Dioxide - pre & post combustion, capture of and transportation & long-term storage of CO2
  • Innovative Technologies - Integrated gasification Combined cycle, fuel cells, advanced combined cycle gas turbines.
