Australian National Low Emissions Coal R&D (ANLEC R&D)

ANLEC R&D has invested over 100 million dollars in research and development effort to support demonstration of low emissions coal technologies (LECT) for power generation.

This focus is driven by the recognition that early projects must succeed for LECT to be accepted as a viable option in the full suite of technologies. This will be required to achieve substantial global reductions in CO₂ emissions while meeting growing energy demand.

Research at ANLEC R&D addresses the near term risk reduction and technology developments necessary for successful demonstration of LECT in Australia. They provide support for, and investigation of, issues affecting the performance of the early demonstration projects.

Research results to date have:

  • Validated lower cost approaches for oxy-fuel to delivery of acceptable flue gas CO₂ quality for transport and storage
  • Reported on the environmental performance of post combustion capture for power generation using selected amines
  • Enabled the development of 3D digitising technology to reduce reservoir characterisation time
  • Reported on prospects for favourable injectivity in the Surat basin
  • Delivered leading edge research to inform appraisal well locations and containment for the Perth Basin
  • Provided research recommendations for managing multiple resource interactions in the subsurface

ANLEC R&D funding is provided by the Australian Government Department Industry, Innovation and Science through the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative, and by the ACA Low Emissions Technologies Ltd (ACALET) through the COAL21 Fund.
