The Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) has selected ten projects to receive funding through NETL’s Advanced Combustion Systems Program, including “Characterizing Impacts of High Temperatures and Pressures in Oxy-coal Combustion Systems”.

The program focuses on lowering costs and improving performance of combustion systems that generate electricity with near-zero emissions, including CO2.

For “Characterizing Impacts of High Temperatures and Pressures in Oxy-coal Combustion Systems”, Reaction Engineering International (Murray, UT) will team with experts from University of Utah, Praxair, and Jupiter Oxygen Corporation to perform multi-scale experiments, mechanism development, and computational fluid dynamics modeling to generate modeling tools and mechanisms capable of describing high-temperature and -pressure oxy-coal combustion. The information generated by this 18-month project can be used by industry and other researchers to assess the use of high-temperature and elevated temperature high-pressure oxy-combustion and to guide development of new oxy-coal boiler designs.
