Low Emission Coal Energetics

We are the focal point of research projects focused on carbon capture and storage (CCS) issues arising from fossil fuel combustion energetics.

 

 

Our solution to CCS involves:

  • Research and development of the optimal concept of COcapture by post-combustion method (capture from flue gas after fossil fuel combustion); Technical design of a COabsorption capture system from flue gas and optimal integration of the system into the process of power generation with regards to the specified power output and fuel; Evaluation of impacts of integration of the capture system on the operational costs and price of electricity;
  • Research of post-combustion technology:
    • ammonia absorption,
    • low-temperature adsorption on solid sorbents,
    • high-temperature sorption on CaO (so-called carbonate loop);
  • Research and development of the optimal concept of COcapture by the oxyfuel method (pure oxygen combustion); Design of an oxygen burning boiler for the specified power output and fuel; Evaluation of operational costs of a power station with oxyfuel combustion and capture of CO2;
  • Research and development of the optimal concept of COcapture by pre-combustion method (coal gasification and subsequent capture from synthesis gas); Design of a technical system consisting of integrated coal gasification, treatment, purification and separation of COfrom synthesis gas and subsequent use of gas in a combined cycle for energy generation, with regards to the specified power output and fuel; Evaluation of operational costs and price of electricity;
  • Experimental research equipment:
    • Test unit for research of a low-temperature sorption of CO2 from real flue gas located at the Prunéřov power plant;
    • Test unit for research of a high-temperature sorption at the pressure up to 2.5 MPa.

 

Capture of carbon dioxide

 

  • Development of methodologies for assessing the suitability of a potential repository, assessing migration and the interaction of CO2 with the rock environment,
  • Modeling of CO2migration and interaction with the rock environment,
  • Experimental research of CO2migration and interaction on rocks samples corresponding to rocks in potential storage sites in the Czech Republic,
  • Risk analysis for the safety assessment of CO2storage,
  • The acceptability of CO2storage in geological structures for the public,
  • Economy of transport and storage of CO2.
