Advanced Oxy-Combustion Technology Develop and Scale-Up for New and Existing Coal-Fired Power Plants

Performer: Washington University in St. Louis

Project No: FE0009702

Project Description

This Washington University project will develop and test a staged, pressurized oxy-combustion process and evaluate the economics of the system. The process incorporates fuel-staged combustion mode for power plants designed for carbon management. The approach permits control of temperature and heat flux associated with oxy-combustion. The potential benefits of the process are higher efficiency and lower capital and operating costs. Reduced gas volumes, oxygen and auxiliary power demands, and increased CO2 purity in the flue gas are additional anticipated benefits.
