CO2 Recovery Plants : Coal Fired Demonstration Experiences

CO<sub>2</sub> Recovery Plants : Coal Fired Demonstration Experiences
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering (MHIENG) offers large scale, high performance & reliable CO2 recovery plants for application in a wide variety of industries.
MHIENG Technologies Offer a "Large-scale," "High-performance" Plant for CO2 Recovery from Flue Gas MHIENG is proud to present an advanced commercially available CO2 recovery process KM CDR Process (KANSAI MITSUBISHI Carbon Dioxide Recovery Process) which promises enhanced economic performance for plants of wide-ranging capacities. The MHIENG CO2 recovery process utilizes "KS-1," an advanced hindered amine solvent, in conjunction with a line of special proprietary equipment. The technology was developed through cooperation between MHIENG and Kansai Electric Power Company, Inc. (KANSAI). The process is based on an advanced and proven technology for recovering CO2 from various sources of flue gas. Users who adopt this economical process will enjoy benefits such as low energy consumption, low solvent degradation, and reduced corrosion within the equipment.

Coal Fired Demonstration Plant in U.S.A : Alabama

Plant Outline

Client Southern Company
Location Plant Barry power Station, Alabama, US
CO2 recovery capacity 500 metric T/D
Process Improved KM CDR Process®
Solvent KS-1™ Solvent
Use of CO2 Transport and storage (Geo Sequestration)
Start of operation 2011
Flue gas source Coal-fired boiler flue gas

Objectives

CO2 is recovered from a slip stream of flue gas from the Plant Barry Power Station. Following CO2 recovery from the flue gas, the CO2 is compressed and dehydrated before being transported to a near by oil field, by pipeline, for injection and permanent storage in a geological storage formation deep underground.

Coal Fired Demonstration Plant in Japan : Nagasaki

Plant Outline
Client Petrovietnam Fertilizer and Chemicals Corporation
Location Phu My, Vietnam
CO2 recovery capacity 240 metric T/D
Process KM CDR Process®
Solvent KS-1™ Solvent
Use of CO2 Urea Production
Start of operation 2010
Flue gas source Natural gas fired steam reformer flue gas

Results

  • Increased understanding of the effects of impurities on the system (dust,SOx,NOx,etc.)
  • Identifying and incorporating countermeasures for each impurity.
  • Approximately 6,000 hours of operation and experience.
  • Test results will facilitate scale up CO2 capture for coal fired boilers.
  • Proven application of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering (MHIENG)'s CO2 capture technology for coal fired flue gas steams.
