Design and Developed by Jupiter Oxygen

Jupiter Research Facility

Jupiter Oxygen Corporation is leading the application of this unique oxy-fuel technology with carbon capture worldwide and provides developmental engineering for oxy-combustion power plant retrofits as well as new build plants.


OXY-Fuel Research Center Hammond Test Facility

From 2006 until 2012, Jupiter Oxygen has operated a 15 MWthermal oxy-combustion test facility in Hammond, Indiana (Jupiter Oxygenss 3rd generation oxy-fuel development unit). The unit and testing has been supported through federal funding and was conducted with the DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). The development work is based upon Jupiter Oxygen's unique oxy-fuel combustion technology and NETL's Integrated Pollution Removal [IPR] system. This development facility utilized a 50 MMBtu high flame temperature oxy-fuel burner that serves a 5 MWe equivalent test unit



Development and Demonstration Work

In cooperation with the NETL and industry partners, Jupiter Oxygen is advancing the creation of a close to zero emission fossil fuel power plant, limiting NOx, SOx, particulate and mercury emissions to ultra-low levels based upon Jupiter's unique high flame temperature oxy-fuel process..

  • 2004 to 2006: Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with U.S. DOE - NETL
    (DOE CRADA #04-08-JUP)
    • Objective : To share expertise in the fields of fossil-fuell power plants and fossil fuel-fired burners
  • 2006 to 2012: Oxy-Combustion Burner and Integrated Pollutant Removal Research and Development Test Facility, Hammond IN
    (DOE Cooperative Agreement No: DE-FC26-06NT42811)
    • To operate an oxy-combustion test facility built around a 15 MWth steam boiler (first on natural gas and then on coal)
    • A pilot scale demonstration of CO₂ capture system was developed with USDOE NETL.
    • Parametric studies performed at the facility demonstrated the feasibility of Jupiter Oxygen's high flame temperature oxy-combustion technology for boiler firing and generated technical data necessary for scale-up and optimization. In addition, the test facility provided a platform for high flame temperature burner development.
  • 2015 to 2018: "Characterizing Impacts of High Temperatures and Pressures in Oxy-coal Combustion Systems"
    (DOE Cooperative Agreement No. DE-FE0025168)
    Reaction Engineering International / University of Utah / Praxair / Jupiter Oxygen Corporation
    • Objective: "To perform multi-scale experiments, mechanism development, and computational fluid dynamics modeling to generate modeling tools and mechanism capable of describing high-temperature and -pressure oxy-coal combustion."
