Title: Pilot-Scale Evaluation of an Advanced Carbon Sorbent-Based Process for Post-Combustion Carbon Capture

Abstract

The overall objective of this project is to achieve the DOE’s goal to develop advanced CO 2 capture and separation technologies that can realize at least 90% CO 2 removal from flue gas steams produced at a pulverized coal (PC) power plant at a cost of less than $40/tonne of CO 2 captured. The principal objective is to test a CO 2 capture process that will reduce the parasitic plant load by using a CO 2 capture sorbent that will require a reduced amount of steam. The process is based on advanced carbon sorbents having a low heat of adsorption, high CO 2 adsorption capacity, and excellent selectivity. While the intent of this project was to produce design and performance data by testing the sorbent using a slipstream of coal-derived flue gas at the National Carbon Capture Center (NCCC) under realistic conditions and continuous long-term operation, the project was terminated following completion of the detailing pilot plant design/engineering work on June 30, 2016.
