Integration of capture plant and power plant, Rotterdam Opslag en Afvang Demonstratieproject: special report for the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute
Integration of capture plant and power plant, Rotterdam Opslag en Afvang Demonstratieproject: special report for the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute

19th December 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

This report focuses on the integration of the existing coal-fired 1 070 MW Unit 3 of Maasvlakte Power Plant (MPP3) with the proposed new 250 MW scale carbon capture plant of the Rotterdam Opslag en Afvang Demonstratieproject (ROAD). Carbon capture technology has been the subject of considerable research to reduce the costs of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), and the subject of many publications. However, the integration with the main power plant also has important impacts on the efficiency and operability of the CCS chain, and is a significant project cost in its own right.

Gas quality impacts, assessment and control in oxy-fuel technology for CCS
Gas quality impacts, assessment and control in oxy-fuel technology for CCS

1st November 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

This University of Newcastle study has confirmed the reactions, mechanisms and processes operating that deliver relatively clean flue-gas (carbon dioxide) for storage from the Callide Oxy-fuel Demonstration. The carbon dioxide processing unit design is shown to be effective, where the significant minor components are removed as condensate at the flue gas compression stage prior to transport and disposal. It shows that expensive de-SOx, de-NOx and dedicated mercury removal equipment is not necessary to clean the gas. On-site testing at the Callide oxy-fuel plant has achieved results consistent with those predicted by the laboratory studies. This research has done ‘outstanding work’ according to the Project Director of the Callide Oxyfuel Project (COP).

Concentrated piperazine based post-combustion-capture for Australian coal-fired power plants: summary report
Concentrated piperazine based post-combustion-capture for Australian coal-fired power plants: summary report

1st September 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

This project was designed to evaluate the use of concentrated piperazine (PZ) for post-combustion capture of CO2 (PCC) in black-coal fired power stations in Australia. Concentrated PZ is an alternative to the standard MEA-based processes and based on extensive laboratory based research has shown attractive attributes such that they have the potential to reduce the costs of capture and compression of CO2 by more than 50%, according to the University of Texas.

Development of the advanced aqueous ammonia based post combustion capture technology: progress report

9th August 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

This research project aims to explore a series of novel post combustion capture (PCC) approaches, and combine an experimental and modelling approach to develop a rigorous rate based assessment of aqueous ammonia based capture, and optimise the scale up this process. This report provides progress on development of the rate based model and assesses the performance of pilot plant trials of aqueous ammonia at the Munmorah PowerStation, New South Wales. Experimental results are presented of eight additives as potential promoters of CO2 absorption in aqueous ammonia.

Review of laboratory-scale geochemical and geomechanical experiments simulating geosequestration of CO2 in sandstone, and associated modelling studies
Review of laboratory-scale geochemical and geomechanical experiments simulating geosequestration of CO2 in sandstone, and associated modelling studies

9th August 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

The main knowledge gaps addressed in this project are the lack of integrated studies assessing both the geochemical and associated geomechanical changes to reservoir and seal rocks with CO2 injection. This initial literature review details the current knowledge and describes commonly used laboratory approaches to assessing reactive geochemical interactions of CO2, formation water and the rock framework. It provides a thorough comparison of the results for both laboratory and modelling experiments documented in the literature.  This is the backdrop of the proposed research on coupled reactive geochemistry and geomechanics in Australian geological scenarios for carbon storage.

Low cost hybrid capture technology development
Low cost hybrid capture technology development

1st June 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

Post-combustion CO2 capture (PCC) has been recognised as a necessary option for reducing the emissions from fossil fuel power plants, especially from coal-fired power plants. The current preferred technology for CO2 capture from PCC is solvent scrubbing, of which the unit size is likely to be larger than the currently operating scrubbing units. This project looks to examine the opportunities to integrate solvent scrubbing with alternative technologies such as CO2 capture by adsorption for a lower energy penalty with additional benefits. This study shows that the hybrid system as proposed was not effective in reducing the overall cost of CO2 capture.

openCCS is the handbook for deliverying CCS projects brought to you by the Global CCS Institute. It has been built to guide you through the key processes and steps needed to deliver each component of an integrated CCS project. It’s a platform for sharing methodologies, best practices and lessons learnt from experience.

The Power Capture Section of the openCCS handbook contains:

Impact of flue gas impurities on amine-based PCC plants
Impact of flue gas impurities on amine-based PCC plants

1st May 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

The objective of this research is to investigate at different sections of the process, the behaviour of trace elements in an amine-based post combustion capture plant (PCC). A literature review is undertaken to establish what data exists on the thermodynamic partitioning of trace elements in post combustion CO2 capture plants. Based upon the outcomes of the literature review, an empirical laboratory investigation is carried out for the thermodynamic partitioning behaviour of the trace elements identified. The partitioning behaviour of the selected trace elements during the processes of acid gas removal, CO2 absorption and stripping are evaluated. While highlighting that the transport of trace elements during PCC operation is largely dependent upon the concentrations, chemical states of the elements, plant design, operational conditions and pollution control methods employed, the current research shows that an acid gas scrubber system can efficiently remove most of the trace elements before entering the absorber/stripper system.

Impacts of trace components on oxy-combustion for the Callide Oxy-fuel Project: literature review
Impacts of trace components on oxy-combustion for the Callide Oxy-fuel Project: literature review

20th February 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

This literature review compiles the current knowledge on trace inorganic species in oxy-combustion. It sets the context in which ongoing research will examine trace components in oxy-combustion for the Callide Oxy-fuel Demonstration project in Australia. The behaviour of trace species in the CO2 stream are potentially significant contributors to oxy- fuel technology performance, and may impose costs associated with gas-cleaning protocols to avoid issues with emissions and corrosion. The report focuses on the release and speciation of trace metals, the amount and particle size distributions of fine particles, and a comparison between oxy-combustion technology and post combustion technology in regard to mercury behaviour.
