GTI and KEPRI will work together on Oxy-PFBC technology to validate the process, mature the technology, and address technology gaps to progress the commercialization of more economical carbon capture technologies.
The Oxy-PFBC technology uses oxy-fuel combustion, a process that burns solid fuel using a pressurized mixture of oxygen and CO2, instead of air, to produce heat to generate electricity. It delivers near-zero emissions by economically capturing greenhouse gases created by combustion.
The two organizations will advance combustor technology to help reduce capital costs and minimize the plant footprint of power generators. The combustor is expected to be one-third the size of a traditional combustor and less than half the cost. A commercial-scale plant is projected to capture CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 800,000 cars from the road.
