Abstract/Summary Coal is the fuel of choice for power production in Australia. The problem is the coal combustion is a significant contributor of greenhouse gases. Therefore, there is a strong commitment of the Australia Government and Industry to reduce CO2 emissions. There are currently thirteen proposals of carbon capture storage at different levels of development and deployment in Australia. This work assesses the potential technologies available for carbon capture and under consideration under the Australian program of low emission coal technologies for air blown and oxy-fuel coal combustion, and coal gasification.
