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

Performer: Washington University in St. Louis

Project No: FE0009702

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project is developing a staged, pressurized, oxy-combustor system. Fuel-staged combustion uses excess oxygen as a diluent to manage peak combustion temperatures, and combined with high pressure operation, has the potential to reduce capital and operating costs relative conventional systems. Specifically, this project will develop and test a laboratory-scale pressurized oxy-combustor to support design, development, and testing of a small-pilot scale prototype.
