Post combustion carbon capture: thermodynamic modelling
19th February 2013
This report provides a methodology for the independent validation of impacts on plant performance and inputs for retrofitting post-combustion capture (PCC) technology. The methodology can also be readily applied to green-field sites. It will also provide the foundation for the valuation of performance risks and potential revenue impacts on facility operation. The report uses a case study based on a 5000 tpd PCC retrofit at the Loy Yang A power station to develop and explain the methodology and presents results from the case study.
Importantly, both the methodology and results described in this report have been peer reviewed by a leading CCS capture technology expert who found the methodology to be a sound approach in providing performance data and in protecting technology vendor intellectual property whilst at the same time providing sufficient confidence to the wider CCS community in being able to evaluate a project.
