Commercialization of the Iron Base Coal Direct Chemical Looping Process for Power Production with in situ Carbon Dioxide Capture


Performer: Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group

Project No: FE0009761


Project Description

The project goal is to develop a 550 MW commercial-scale economic case study of Babcock and Wilcox (B&W) and The Ohio State University’s coal direct chemical looping (CDCL) process for CO2 capture and separation that can be used for retrofit, repowering, and/or Greenfield installations. Project objectives are to validate the CDCL process application for power generation through engineering system and economic analysis and an experimental, bench scale system suitable for addressing the identified technology gaps.
