According to sources, it has been revealed that UK has launched its second competition, inviting all the power plant companies to come up with workable models of techniques to capture carbon dioxide.
The competition worth £1bn has come up just after six months of the first project failed, due to financial disagreements between the Scottish power company and the government.
However, while UK government is still on its way to put up such a project into action, the Canadian government has already approved a CCS project in Saskatchewan that is due to start in 2014, while another CCS plant in Mississippi is expected to be operated the same year.
However, the Department of Energy and Climate Change affirmed that the government is doing its best to come up with such CCS projects. The officials of the department affirmed that till now no government of any country have put up such a large investment of £1bn for these projects.
These competitions are being introduced to achieve new ideas and techniques to help control the level of carbon dioxide and hence, reduce the effect of global warming. The techniques will be deployed on those power stations that burn fossil fuels to capture the emissions and prevent them from disturbing the ecological balance.
