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


Performer: Aerojet Rocketdyne

Project No: FE0009448


Program Background and Project Benefits

This project focuses on development of an oxygen-fired pressurized fluidized-bed combustor (Oxy-PFBC). The Oxy-PFBC operates at high pressure and improved efficiency, lowering capital and operating cost, and incorporates limestone injection to facilitate SO2 removal, reducing emission control equipment costs. Specifically, this project will design, build, and test a small-pilot scale Oxy-PFBC combustor to provide data necessary for scale-up.
