21 Mar 2012: Proposed UK Plant Would Capture 90 Percent of CO2 Emissions A U.S.-led consortium has announced plans to build a new coal plant in Scotland that it says will be able to capture 90 percent of its carbon emissions. The so-called Caledonia Clean Energy Project, which would be CO2 Capture and Storage Looks to Gain Foothold The drive to extract and store carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plants seemed to be gaining momentum last year. But, as David Biello reported, critical questions remained. READ THE e360 REPORT built near Edinburgh, is perhaps the most ambitious carbon capture and storage (CCS) proposal so far in the UK, where earlier projects have struggled to get off the ground. The proposal — which would be developed by the Seattle-based Summit Power Group — received qualified endorsements from some UK environmental groups, but is expected to meet resistan...
