Advanced Oxy-firing to facilitate
CO2 Capture + Storage

Project Description

This project will develop an improved mechanistic understanding of the role of water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) on materials performance in order to assist in lifetime modeling for current and future higher performance materials and coatings in contact with the fireside environment of oxygen fired coal based power generation systems.

Project Benefits

This project will determine the temperature-dependent corrosion mechanisms of candidate high-temperature alloys and coatings in oxy-firing systems. Improvements to high-temperature advanced-materials will promote the creation of a knowledge base with the potential to support material selection and development for the demanding requirements of advanced, higher-efficiency steam cycles in order to reduce coal consumption, CO2 emissions, and the power requirements for CO2 capture, transport, and storage systems.
