Novel, high-efficiency power cycles using supercritical carbon dioxide as the working fluid can potentially provide low-cost, low-carbon coal-fired power generation. This study evaluated the performance and capital costs of two coal-fired power plants using gasification and a direct-fired supercritical carbon dioxide power cycle.
Established in Wilsonville, Alabama by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Carbon Capture Center tests advanced carbon capture technologies for combustion and gasification in coal-fired power plants. This report discusses 2016 test activities with technologies such as solvents, sorbents, catalysts, and membranes for pre- and post-combustion capture.
