Impacts of trace components on Oxy-combustion for the Callide Oxy-fuel Project: results from Callide fieldtrials, December, 2012
Impacts of trace components on Oxy-combustion for the Callide Oxy-fuel Project: results from Callide fieldtrials, December, 2012

11th July 2014

Organisation(s): Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research & Development (ANLEC R&D), Macquarie University

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

Over a 3 week period in December 2012, the retrofitted Callide-A Oxyfuel demonstration power plant conducted an investigation into the behaviour of trace elements during oxy-firing and fluegas capture and processing.

This Macquarie University study is one of the first of its type at scale. Its conclusion suggests that the health and environmental outcomes under oxy-firing conditions are likely to be similar to those achieved when using conventional air-firing. Levels of metals, acid gases and mercury in particular, are below the level of operational concern in the CO2 processing unit after the first low pressure scrubber. The report contains a significant level of additional detail that will assist in both flowsheet design and environmental permitting for the technology.

Organisation(s): Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research & Development (ANLEC R&D), Macquarie University

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 capture, Health, safety and environment, Use and storage (CCUS)

ANLEC R&D funded this technical report that follows a previous report on field experiment results from the retrofitted Callide-A Oxyfuel demonstration power plant. Additional analysis was conducted to bring this project to a conclusion. Further results support that the levels of metals, acid gases and mercury in particular, are below the level of operational concern in the CO2 processing unit (CPU), and that the health and environmental outcomes under oxy-firing conditions are likely to be similar to those achieved when using conventional air-firing.

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

Organisation(s): Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research & Development (ANLEC R&D), Macquarie University

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

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.
