Novel gas-liquid contactor concepts for PCC capital and operating cost reduction
Novel gas-liquid contactor concepts for PCC capital and operating cost reduction

25th August 2014

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

ANLEC R&D funded this CSIRO technical report that describes the development of a novel gas-liquid contactor aimed at reducing the capital and operating costs of Post Combustion Capture (PCC) commercial scale plants.

This project developed an innovative contactor which aimed to improve the economics of post combustion capture (PCC). The contactor design reduces the size of the column and eliminated the column packing, which enables an overall capital cost reduction of 30% and a power consumption reduction of 25%. Process optimisation in PCC deployment at scale will validate performance.  However the concept has demonstrated excellent potential for cost savings and can be applicable to many existing technologies and processes.

Demonstrating CO2 capture in the UK cement, chemicals, iron and steel and oil refining sectors by 2025: a techno-economic study
Demonstrating CO2 capture in the UK cement, chemicals, iron and steel and oil refining sectors by 2025: a techno-economic study

30th April 2014

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

In November 2013, the United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), and Department of Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) commissioned a team led by Element Energy, and comprising Carbon Counts, PSE, Imperial College and the University of Sheffield, to carry out a study of industrial CO2 capture for storage or utilisation.

The primary focus of this study is assessing the technical potential and cost effectiveness for retrofit deployment of different CO2 capture technologies to the UK’s existing largest (0.2-8 MtCO2/yr) sources of process CO2 emissions in the cement, chemicals, iron and steel, and oil refining sectors by 2025.

CO2 capture at gas fired power plants
CO2 capture at gas fired power plants

19th July 2012

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

The purpose of this study is to investigate the technical and economic performance of CO2 capture and compression technologies at new-build gas-fired power plants. The study report provides information on the designs of each of the plants, their power output, efficiency, greenhouse gas intensity, capital costs, operating and maintenance costs, levelised costs of electricity and costs of CO2 avoidance. Process flow diagrams, stream data, equipment lists and plant layout diagrams are also provided.

The costs of CO2 capture: post-demonstration CCS in the EU
The costs of CO2 capture: post-demonstration CCS in the EU

15th July 2011

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

The companies, scientists, academics and environmental NGOs that together make up the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) have undertaken a ground-breaking study into the costs of CO2 capture based on new data provided exclusively by ZEP member organisations on existing pilot and planned demonstration projects. This report describe costs associated with the capture process and the conditioning and compression/liquefaction of the captured CO2 required for transport. The technologies studied are first-generation capture technologies, namely post-combustion CO2 capture, IGCC with pre-combustion capture and oxy-fuel for hard coal, lignite and natural gas.

Database and model of coal-fired power plants in the United States for examination of the costs of retrofitting with CO2 capture technology
Database and model of coal-fired power plants in the United States for examination of the costs of retrofitting with CO2 capture technology

1st April 2009

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

Given the importance of coal to power generation in the United States, where coal-fired power plants supply around 50 percent of the Nation’s electricity needs, examination of the costs and practicability for retrofit of existing pulverized coal power plants with CO2 capture technology is a valid exercise. To help elucidate this issue, this study defines a viable population of pulverized coal plants, which were examined individually to determine costs and space availability for retrofit. The task was to assess coal-fired power plants in the U.S. relative to the cost and feasibility for retrofitting with COcapture technology.

Retrofitting coal-fired power plants for carbon dioxide capture and sequestration: exploratory testing of NEMS for integrated assessments
Retrofitting coal-fired power plants for carbon dioxide capture and sequestration: exploratory testing of NEMS for integrated assessments

18th January 2008

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

As part of an assessment for analyzing the prospects of retrofitting existing coal-fired power plants for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration, an integrated analysis using the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) of the Energy Information Administration was undertaken using a generic model of retrofit costs as a function of basic plant characteristics (such as heat rate). Modifications to NEMS were made to enable an endogenous determination of the tradeoffs between retrofit, retirement, and the purchase of emission allowances. The cost for CO2 retrofit included direct costs (capital and O&M), indirect costs (capacity and heat rate penalties), and a nominal cost for transportation, injection, measurement, monitoring, and verification (MMV).
