Title:Energy and Carbon Capture Technology Research -- Lab-Scale Studies
Subject(s):Carbon capture -- Research
Coal-fired power plants -- Environmental aspects
Abstract:Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from coal-fired power plants and other industrial facilities need to be reduced as part of U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan. Current carbon capture technologies are very energy intensive and nearly double the cost of generating electricity. Therefore, the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE) has set a goal of developing a technology that can remove 90% of the CO2 released from coal combustion with a 30% lower cost of electricity than the current benchmark approaches. ISTC is collaborating with the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) and the Applied Research Institute on campus and external partner Trimeric Corporation of Buda, Texas to demonstrate a novel biphasic CO2 absorption process (BICAP) and generate engineering and scale-up data for next-stage scale up.
