Recovery Act: Oxy-combustion: Oxygen Transport Membrane Development

Performer: Praxair

Project No: FC26-07NT43088

Program Background and Project Benefits

The focus of this project is the development of the oxygen transport membrane (OTM) technology for processing gaseous fuels. The OTM reduces oxygen production needs, lowering capital and operating costs, and produces a highly concentrated stream of CO2, providing a low-cost, near-zero emissions alternative for industrial processes used to process gaseous fuels. Specifically, this project will demonstrate a development-scale (~160,000 scfd syngas/ 200kWt equivalent) OTM oxycombustion and reformer unit to support design of a pilot-scale OTM process.
