IEP – In-House Post-Combustion CO2 Emissions Control
The objective of this National Energy Technology Laboratory Office
of Research and Development (ORD) multi-faceted project is to develop
carbon dioxide (CO2) capture systems for coal-based power plants that lower the costs and energy penalty associated with those systems.
Research and development in the capture area is aimed at developing
systems that are low in capital cost, have low parasitic load, can
significantly reduce CO2 emissions, and can be integrated
within the power generation system. A majority of the research will
occur on laboratory- and bench-scale reactors. Further information on
ORD’s CO2 capture projects can be found by using the links found in the adjacent blue box.
