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.
Ultrasupercritical Pulverized Coal Power Plants with Partial Carbon Dioxide Capture: 2015 Detailed Feasibility Study
This study assesses the performance and costs of ultra-supercritical pulverized-coal power plants with partial CO₂ capture designed to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s initial CO₂ emissions limit of 1,100 pounds per megawatt-hour.
How can coal remain competitive with low-carbon generation technologies? This modeling study developed a best-case scenario for a coal-fired power plant with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture to meet proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards. It is one of a series of EPRI studies on ways to improve coal plant efficiency and optimize CO2 capture.
