US firm to build coal fired power station in Scotland

A US power company, Summit Power Group is planning to build a coal fired power station at Grangemouth, Scotland.

The BBC reports that the plant would use carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in a bid to reduce emissions by more than 90 per cent.

Summit Power Group has joined forces with National Grid PLC and the oil services company Petrofac in the project.

The scheme's backers hope to win funding for the Caledonia Clean Energy Project from the UK government.
