PSE Debuts Full-Chain Modelling Software for CCS [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London-based Process Systems Enterprise (PSE) officially launched its gCCS systems modeling environment for full-chain carbon capture and storage (CCS) applications.
According to a release, speaking at the annual Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) reception at the House of Lords, Energy Secretary Ed Davey referred to gCCS saying "This project is a great example of a UK company creating new jobs and seizing opportunities in the emerging and exciting CCS sector. The UK is a CCS world leader and we want to continue building a strong and successful industry which helps us to fight climate change in a cost-effective way."
gCCS is a modeling software to be specifically designed for full CCS chains - from power generation through CO2 capture, compression and transport to injection. Implemented in PSE's gPROMS advanced process modeling platform, it uses models to predict how the CCS chain's components will interact under different scenarios.
The first commercial deployment of gCCS in the UK is in the Peterhead CCS Project, where it will be used to investigate the flexibility of the operation of the capture process when integrated within the full system.
Andrew Green, ETI's CCS Programme Manager, said "We commissioned the project to improve understanding of the technological and economic potential of CCS by simulating the operation of all aspects of the CCS chain, managing trade-offs and mitigating risks. The results more than met our expectations".
Alfredo Ramos, head of PSE's Power & CCS business, added: "gCCS's ability to address the complex interactions in CCS systems has been consistently proven during its extensive validation and testing by over 20 industrial and research organisations in Europe, US and Korea."
