CCSA welcomes GE and Doosan Babcock as its newest members
31st January 2022, London – The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA), the trade body for the Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) industry in the UK, is delighted to welcome two new members; GE and Doosan Babcock.
GE Gas Power, a business of General Electric Company, is a world leader in natural gas power technology, services, and solutions – providing more advanced, cleaner and efficient power that people depend on today and building the energy technologies of the future.
Doosan Babcock is a multinational company which specialises in the delivery of engineering, aftermarket and upgrade services to the thermal power, nuclear, oil and gas, petrochemical and process industries. Doosan Babcock has a wealth of experience in carbon capture and has been involved in the development of oxyfuel combustion, amine based post-combustion capture and novel capture technologies.
Ruth Herbert, Chief Executive of the CCSA, said:
“The Association has experienced unprecedented growth in membership over the past year, having almost doubled in size since January 2021, and represents a broad spectrum of companies active on CCUS. I am delighted to welcome GE and Doosan Babcock to the CCSA, in what is undoubtedly a crucial time for the CCUS industry as it prepares to play a vital role in decarbonising the power and industrial sectors.”
Martin O’Neill, Vice President – Strategy at GE Gas Power said:
“GE believes strongly in the important role of carbon capture, utilisation and sequestration (CCUS) for new and existing gas plants to support climate change efforts by reducing or eliminating carbon emissions, thus preserving the crucial role of dispatchable, flexible power to balance variable renewable energy sources. We’re looking forward to working with the CCSA and its members to advance the cost-effectiveness, performance, and adoption of CCUS solutions for flexible gas plants through innovative design and integration approaches by developing multiple FEED studies and commercial projects, in support of Europe’s net zero ambitions.”
David Cornforth, Director, Process & Energy at Doosan Babcock said:
“Doosan Babcock are excited to become part of the CCSA community. We believe Carbon Capture is vital to the UK achieving its Net Zero aspirations. We look forward to working with the association and its wider membership to develop the UK supply chain and ensure successful commercial deployment of the technology.”
Notes to Editors
CCUS, or Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage, is a key low carbon solution – vital to meeting the UK’s statutory Net Zero target at least cost. CCUS enables the production of clean power, clean products (such as steel and cement) and clean hydrogen – which can then be used to decarbonise heating and transport. In addition, CCUS also enables greenhouse gas removal from the atmosphere through Direct Air Capture with Storage (DACS) or Bioenergy with CCS (BECCS).
The CCSA is the trade association promoting the commercial deployment of CCUS. We work with members, governments and other organisations to ensure CCUS is developed and deployed at the pace and scale necessary to meet net zero goals and deliver sustainable growth across regions and nations.
The CCSA currently has over 70 member companies who are active in exploring and developing different applications of carbon capture, from diverse point sources and directly from air, CO2 transportation by pipeline and ship, utilisation, geological storage, and other permanent storage solutions, as well as members from management, legal and financial consulting sectors.
