Callide Oxyfuel Project

The world’s first industrial-scale demonstration of oxyfuel combustion and carbon capture technology

An international collaboration

Comprising seven partners, the project’s success relied on the individual strengths of its partners, supporters and participants, as well as the group’s ability to collaborate effectively.

Sharing knowledge

One of only a handful of low-emission coal projects in the world, the project made a significant contribution to the international carbon capture and storage knowledge bank

The Callide Oxyfuel Project was the largest oxyfuel demonstration in the world when it completed its demonstration phase in March 2015. The project helped create a pathway for the design and construction of larger-scale oxyfuel combustion plants with carbon capture, and in doing so, helped created a very exciting future for the technology.

A world-first international collaboration

The project

As one of only a handful of coal-fired, low-emission projects in the world: to move beyond concept to construction, the project represented several firsts for Australia and the world.

The technology

The Callide Oxyfuel Project demonstrated the production of the electricity from coal with almost no power station emissions to the atmosphere.

Sharing knowledge

The Callide Oxyfuel Project made a significant contribution to the international carbon capture and storage knowledge bank.
