Abstract
Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) systems have emerged as one of the most viable power generation technologies that enable carbon capture and sequestration. However, technological improvements in supporting subsystems are still needed to reduce the capital and operating costs of IGCC plants. The carbon capture system is one of the most expensive components of the IGCC plants; these two systems alone account for over 14% of the overall capital cost and account for more than 11% of the cost of electricity. TDA Research, Inc. proposes to develop a dense membrane that can separate CO2 from coal derived synthesis gas at temperatures well above the dew point of the synthesis gas. High operating temperature of the membrane ensures high cycle efficiency.Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The new process will provide a cost effective method to capture carbon emissions from the advanced, highly efficient and environmentally responsible coal-based power generation processes, such as the IGCC systems. A very large market could potentially develop if new regulations to curb CO2 emissions put in place. TDAs technology could find use in chemical and petrochemical industries where high temperature separation of CO2 from process gas is needed
