Novel Pre-Combustion Capture Concepts

SP leader:

Objectives:
To investigate prospective emerging pre-combustion capture technologies having a high potentiality for capture cost reduction while maintaining a high capture rate. The major part will be devoted to advanced oxy-fuel gas turbine concepts. The research will follow a vertical, three-step approach by screening, modeling and verification. This involves actions like world-wide screening of energy conversion technologies, generating new ideas on advanced power generation and cycle development, classification of emerging technologies by in-depth investigation - supported by modeling, conceptual design, novel techniques for experimental clarification of selected key elements, and economic ranking. These actions will be liaised with the relevant SPs. Emerging capture technologies for power cycles will be further addressed.
