CCS and Power Systems

Advanced Energy Systems - Gasification Systems

Coal - Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Slurry Feeding System for Pressurized Gasifiers

Performer: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Project No: FE0012500

Project Scope and Technology Readiness Level

This project will encompass two integrated threads of research. The first thread will develop a model of the phase inversion coal feeding process based on literature data and theory regarding the thermodynamic and rate processes. The second thread will examine how the CO2 slurry preparation and feeding system will impact the overall processes including the gasifier and downstream operations. Techno-economic evaluations of the integrated processes of the feeding system in the context of an IGCC process and the innovative Allam Cycle process for power generation will be performed.

The Technology Readiness Level (TRL) assessment identifies the current state of readiness of the key technologies being developed under the DOE's Clean Coal Research Program. This project has not been assessed.

The TRL assessment process and its results including definition and description of the levels may be found in the "2012 Technology Readiness Assessment-Analysis of Active Research Portfolio".
