Carbon Capture

Carbon dioxide is the principal product when fossil fuels are burned for energy. Nitrous and Sulfer Oxides, Mercury and Particulate Matter are also byproducts of fossil fuels. Carbon capture is a broad title for a number of technologies that “capture” the CO₂ . The International Energy Agency has created a Sustainable Development Scenario identifying Carbon Capture technologies as an important part of climate change mitigation.

  • Hot flue gas exits the boiler and enters a solids separation unit (ESP, Baghouse) (G0)
  • Flue gas enters the bottom of the direct contact spray tower and is scrubbed with counter flow sodium carbonate solution or calcium carbonate if sulfur removal is required (SOx, water soluble impurities and water removed)
  • Flue gas passes through a coalescing filter, heater then enters 1st stage compressor (G1) Flue gas is compressed, cooled and enters coalescing filter where additional impurities are removed, water is recovered and waste heat is recovered is repeated 2-3X for purification (G2-G4)
  • 95% purity CO₂ produced and available for delivery for use and/or storage. The non-condensibles (Ar, N2 , O2 ) are vented through the stack.

  • The process produces 95% purity Transport Ready CO₂
  • Minimize parasictic loads and maximize heat recovery with integration with the power plant thermal cycle(Parasictic load ~ 10% of gross MWe output)
  • Boiler operations are not disrupted during the construction phase. CO₂ capture system will be tied in with the boiler at the same time the oxy-fuel burners are installed.
  • Co-developed with the US DOE - National Energy Technology Laboratory(NETL), JOC has patent rights
  • 99% water soluble impurities removal
  • 99% water removal and available for recovery

 

Driving Energy Independence / Global Carbon Mitigation / Local Air Pollution Control

  • Combining Oxy-Fuel Combustion Carbon Capture with Enhanced Coalbed Methane Recovery Provides Huge Cost Advantages and Co-Benefits

  • Increased domestic production of Natural Gas can replace imported fuels, saving capital cost and Enhance Energy Security.

  • Financing Support for CCUS demonstration projects in Emerging Economies is imperative for accelerated Technology Deployment.

  • Local Oil & Gas Companies or other entities are potential buyers and off-takers for CO₂ for use in energy production.

  • The captured CO₂ from coal fired power plants in conjunction with nitrogen (available from an air separation unit as part of the oxy-combustion technology), can be injected into deep, unmineable coal seams to release trapped methane.

  • In this application, the process is referred to as Enhanced Coal-Bed Methane (ECBM) recovery. This domestically produced cleaner methane substitutes for coal in electricity production or for expensive natural gas imports in developing countries.

Enhanced Oil Recovery

Cost of ECBM recovery is sensitive to both the geology of the local coal seam and the distance between the unmineable coal seam and the CO₂ “source” facility.

ECBM

Enhanced Coal-Bed Methane recovery is domestically produced cleaner methane which substitutes for coal in electricity production or for expensive natural gas imports in developing countries.

Industrial Applications

Implementing these technologies at scale will facilitate achieving the INDCs, support national efforts to protect local environments, and contribute to the stability of our shared global atmosphere.
