New NETL Facility Tests Co2 Capture
To accelerate DOE's evaluation of viable options to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from large fossil-fuel-based power generation sources, the Department's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)
has designed and constructed a modular, versatile facility on site to test new ideas for the capture and sequestration of CO2. The facility, the Modular Carbon Dioxide Capture Facility (MCCF), can operate on natural gas, coal, or a combination of both to simulate coal-fired combustion processes. The MCCF therefore can be used to timely evaluate promising CO2 capture and separation processes, while addressing
DOE's Carbon Sequestration Program goal to develop more efficient, clean, and cost-effective CO2 disposal systems. By offering its MCCF to the research community at-large, NETL's Carbon Sequestration Science Focus Area welcomes partnerships with industry and other stakeholders interested in capture/separation techniques within sequestration scenarios.
