ZeroGen - Project Profile

ZeroGen is at the forefront of global efforts to produce smarter, cleaner power from coal. The first-of-a-kind project is integrating the technologies of Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) to produce low-emission, base load electricity.

It will develop a 530 megawatt (MW) commercial-scale IGCC power plant with CCS, to be deployed in Queensland in 2015. The project is a world first, and will play a crucial role in demonstrating the technology at commercial scale to accelerate its uptake in Australia and around the world.

The widespread deployment of IGCC with CCS has the potential to deliver significant cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from coal-based power generation. At maturity, the technology has the potential to capture up to 90 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from a commercial-scale power plant for safe storage underground.
