Article – Global CCS Institute

The Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (GCCSI) recently ran an article in follow up to the Brown Coal Innovation Australia Coal Drying and Handling Forum held in Melbourne last month. The article, by GCCSI Senior Project Manager Dennis Van Puyveled, provided an overview of the forum and highlighted the synergies between drying lignite and carbon capture and storage (CCS) endeavours. Featuring Coldry as an example of such a drying technology, Van Puyveled touched on the importance of delivering meaningful CO2 abatement via a portfolio approach: “Reducing emissions is a portfolio approach. Many organisations often promote the use of a portfolio approach to reducing emissions in order to ensure that the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere does not exceed 450 ppm . The technologies often talked about are CCS, energy efficiency, nuclear, fuel switching and renewables. However many of these technologies tend to be promoted within certain industries. Indeed, drying of brown coal is a way to improve energy efficiency but it has implications on other technologies such as carbon capture. All these technologies need to be developed in parallel to identify and work with the synergies between the technologies.”
