Fluor to Lead Greenhouse Gas Study
Fluor have announced that they have been selected by the International Energy Agency Greenhouse Gas Research and Development Program to conduct a study on the capture and recovery of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the power industry.
Fluor will be working with Mitsui Babcock, Alstom Power and Imperial College London to determine
the cost options for capture and recovery of CO2 from natural gas combined-cycle and
pulverized-coal fueled power generation plants. The study will investigate many unresolved
issues on capture technology integration into a power plant. The team will also visualize
likely technology developments over the next two decades and will produce road maps for the
introduction of this technology.
Fluor's office in Camberley, U.K., will lead the work with input from the company's global
technology and industry teams that work on cutting-edge technologies and are located around the
world. The study is due to be completed by April 2004.
The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Program is an international collaboration of member organizations
which evaluates technologies for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and disseminates the
results of these evaluations to identify and promote targets for research, development and
