Research, develop and validate carbon dioxide capture transformation materials, processes, and enabling technologies at bench scale for pulverized coal or natural gas fire power plants that enable step-change reductions in current CO2 capture costs and energy penalties in support of DOE’s Carbon Capture Program goal. Submissions for this funding opportunity close on Sep 28, 2018.
The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop transformational technologies that are capable of step-change reductions in CO2 capture cost and energy penalties. One of the technical pathways that is supported is Post-Combustion Capture, which is primarily applicable to PC-fired power plants. The principal challenge in post-combustion capture is separating the low percentage of CO2 from other flue gas constituents that generally are detrimental to separation materials, capture systems, materials of construction, and process and plant efficiency.
Research and development under this FOA are focused on developing CO2 capture technologies for both coal and natural gas power generation. However, any proposed R&D for natural gas-fired systems must provide a discussion on how test results from natural gas derived flue gas will be applicable to the development of the proposed technology with coal-derived flue gas.
