CO2 Capture

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.
