CO2 capture

By Chemical Engineering |

BP Alternative Energy (Sunbury, (U.K.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6899-544) and Powerspan Corp. (Portsmouth, N.H.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6899-545) are collaborating to develop and commercialize Powerspan’s carbon dioxide capture technology, called ECO2. The agreement covers financial and technical support for pilot demonstration and commercial scaleup activities, including the possibility for a joint development of large-scale demonstration projects. In the ECO2 process, CO2 is captured from fluegas by scrubbing with an aqueous ammonia solution, which absorbs CO2 by forming ammonium bicarbonate (CE, July 2006, p. 14). Early next year, pilot-scale testing is expected to begin at FirstEnergy Corp.’s R.E. Burger plant in Shadyside, Ohio. The pilot unit will process a 1-MW slipstream from the coal-fired power plant, removing approximately 20 ton/d of CO2.
