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 project will evaluate a novel process for pressurized oxy-combustion in a fluidized bed reactor. Pressurized combustion in oxygen and the recycling of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas eliminates the presence of nitrogen and other constituents of air, thus minimizing the generation of pollutants and enabling the economic capture of CO2 gas.
