The Belchatow CCS Project is a proposal by Alstom and PGE Elektrownia Belchatow S.A. to develop a carbon capture and storage plant at the existing Belchatow power station in Poland.

In a 2008 media release Alstom stated that the company "will design and construct a pilot carbon capture plant at the existing unit 12 of the Belchatow power plant, which would capture approximately 100,000 tonnes per year of CO2 using Alstom’s advanced amines technology. The pilot will be jointly operated by Alstom and Elektrownia Belchatow and is expected to be in operation by mid 2011." The company also stated that the "second phase" of the project was to build a larger CCS plant to capture CO2 produced by Belchatow 2 Power Station which Alstom and PGE Elektrownia Belchatow have also proposed.[1]

Alstom stated that the Belchatow CCS Project "is one of the candidate projects to the EU Flagship Programme for Carbon Capture and Storage."
