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.
Commercially available acid gas removal systems can capture CO₂ from the gas stream of coal-fired power plants, but they are designed for baseload operations. This report assesses an improvement in the system design that could result in more operating flexibility. The results are a first successful step to develop a rapid response CO₂ absorber for […]
