ScottishPower claims to have made a breakthrough in reducing the amount of energy required to separate carbon emissions at its coal-fired Longannet Power Station.

The testing at Longannet to assess the performance of the amine capture plant under a range of operating conditions has been underway since May this year.

Employing a mixture of process improvements and low energy solvents, technicians from ScottishPower and partner company Aker Clean Carbon say they has managed to reduce energy consumption by around a third.

Testing will continue for some more time, but the company believes the technology is ready for a full-scale demonstration.
