This project combines the CFB’s intrinsic advantages (fuel flexibility and low emissions) with oxygen-firing for carbon capture and storage (CCS). In oxygen-firing systems the fuel is burned in a mixture of pure O2 and recirculated flue gas instead of air. The absence of air nitrogen produces a flue gas stream with a high concentration of CO2, making it much easier to separate the CO2. CFB technol ...
