The SIP aim is the needs for better understanding of carbon capture processes and their integratiom with thermal power generation suystems.
TASK A: High-temperature CO<sub>2</sub> separation. CO<sub>2</sub> selective inorganic membranes, basic membrane transport and separation mechanisms in various CO<sub>2</sub> containing gas mixtures at elevated temperatures. Preparing CO<sub>2</sub> chemisorbents for selectively removing CO<sub>2</sub> and Co<sub>2</sub> sorption on chosen materials.
TASK B: Im proved absorption processes for CO<sub>2</sub> from natural gas fired power plants. Develop new absorbents for CO<sub>2</sub> capture with higher eficiency uses of molecular modelling and chemical evaluation, testing of inorganic chemicals.
TASK C: Pres surised combustion of enriches fuels. Most capturing techniques include enriched fuels (H/O/N and HO) that are rather unusual. Methods will be experimental charakterisation of fundamental and practical combustion properties, incorporating these results in mathematical models that are used in simulation tools, in particular computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
TASK D: Power cycles with carbon capture involves systems analysis and development of advanced computation tools for evaluating the future potential and thermodynamic and dynamic performance of such power-cycle concepts.
TASK G: Chemical-looping combustion (CLC). CO<sub>2</sub> separation is achieved by arranging the combustion reaction in two separate reactors. Methods involve development of comput ational tools for ranking the suitability of various CLC schemes Experimental work will be carried out to synthesize oxygen carriers and demonstrate their suitability in a laboratory setup simulated circulating fluidised bed operation.
