Objective To prepare the ground for large-scale European facilities producing hydrogen and electricity from fossil fuels with CO2 capture and permanent storage. ChallengesFossil fuels will remain the prevalent energy source for Europe over the foreseeable future despite their drawback in the context of the climate change issue. In order for Europe to comply with the Kyoto Protocol there is a need for new low-emission technologies - including decarbonised fossil fuels and the use of hydrogen as an energy vector. In this perspective it becomes mandatory to enable efficient ways of isolating the CO2 and storing it safely for thousands of years at reasonable cost and efficiency. DYNAMIS undertakes to investigate viable routes to large-scale cost-effective co-production schemes for hydrogen and electricity with full integrated CO2 management.
DYNAMIS undertakes by 2008 to substantiate the following targets to be achievable for practical operation by 2012:
