Gas quality control in oxy-pf technology for carbon capture and storage
Published:31 May 2012
This study by Newcastle University focuses on the impact of coal quality, such as coal impurities, on performance of Oxy-pulverised fuel (PF) technology for CCS. The impurities examined in detail by this research include: sulphur, mercury, nitrogen and others. The impact of impurities varies significantly for pre- and post- combustion technologies. A literature review highlights Oxy-PF flowsheets from different gas vendors, and cost breakdowns are provided to evaluate the impact of gas impurity in oxy-fuel technology performance.
