Advanced Oxy-Combustion Technology Development and Scale Up for New and Existing Coal-Fired Power Plants


Performer: Aerojet Rocketdyne

Project No: FE0009448


Project Description

This Pratt and Whitney Rocketdyne project will evaluate a novel process for pressurized oxy-combustion in a fluidized bed reactor. The pressurized combustion in oxygen and the recycle of carbon dioxide gas eliminates the presence of nitrogen and other constituents of air, minimizing the generation of pollutants and enabling the economic capture of CO2 gas.
