CCS technology supports the conversion of coal to gas and carbon-based products

A power plant in western Canada is showing off its carbon footprint technology without first having to rebuild a plant that can be operated in a coal-fired power plant and then receive exhaust fumes from a natural gas-fired system. The technology is designed to facilitate the transition from natural gas-producing plants to coal-fired plants.

The technology developed by Delta Klintek allows coal plants to apply CCS to reduce carbon emissions and emissions, and the CCS system can continue to operate after a plant has been modified to burn natural gas. The project is part of a larger Capital Energy initiative to reduce the carbon footprint of consumption at the Capital Power Generation Station near Warburg, Alberta, west of Edmonton. Capital Power with a capacity of more than 64 GW at 26 facilities in North America is re-developing coal-fired units 1 and 2 (Figure 1) using the Genesia Natural Gas Combined Cycling (NCCC) technology and the Delta CleanTech CCS system.

Part 3 At Genesis, another coal-fired unit is undergoing a two-fuel transition and will be 100% gas-filled by 2023. The three parts of the plant have a capacity of over 1,300 MW. Capital Genetics Project is part of the effort to “bring carbon capture, utilization and seating (CCUS) technology to market” and the utility “plans to integrate Direct Recording (DAC) into the decarbonation technology portfolio. Collaborate with dozens of businesses and organizations that develop policies: “To enable the deployment of carbon capture technologies economically, commercially, including carbon capture, disposal, transportation, use and storage of industrial plants, power plants, and the environment.

“The importance of a Genesis-type project reflects the dynamics of the new CO.2 [carbon dioxide] Have a technology that is suitable for charcoal burning and then suitable for natural gas burning, ”said Lionel Campbez, CEO of Delta Clintech, a Calgary-based Alberta-based company. Cambeites said. Power“Many plants around the world are considering switching from coal to natural gas, but they do not want to delay Delta CO.2 Recording technology to be installed today. Delta CleanTech has an unprecedented demand for CO.2 With decentralized power generation projects in Alberta, energy is being generated by offshore natural gas, and the energy can be freely supplied to the grid, and the auxiliary power will be used to drive information for Bitcoin. These Delta projects are working to provide the low energy costs required for cost-effective bitcoin mining and to extract the required electricity from carbon.

Decarbonation is an integral part of such projects; Earlier this year, Senior Vice President Kate Chischel, Chief of Planning, Stakeholder Relations and Capital Power, said: We have a long history of saying what we do, then doing what we say, and extracting coal, investing in hydrogen and CCUS readiness, and investing in Canada’s sustainable energy source.

Delta Clintec’s role in the Genesis project came after the company participated in a Canadian carbon dioxide competition, which “developed new technologies to change CO.”2 Release on used products “Delta CleanTech CO2 To use in the competition.

Said Jeff Allison, the company’s president. Power, “Delta Clinic Post-Fire CO2 Recording technology has been developed over the past 15 years and is considered one of the best and most commercially available carbon recording technology. Delta CleanTech is preparing to sign up with its parent parent HTC Extraction Systems in January at the Canadian Securities Exchange. The company manufactures modular equipment to capture CO2 Exhaust, exhaust and ethanol filtration, hydrogen production and carbon credit certification and trade.

The company’s technology, “Low Cost Design Post-Fire CO2 “Recording technology – or LCDesign – is one of the team’s technologies to capture carbon across industries, including oil and gas production, coal- and natural gas-generating power and industrial food grade CO.2 Markets. Allison said. Power, “Our CO2 It is the first plant in the world to be used for coal production, both before and after its conversion to natural gas.

Acquiring carbon from generic units is part of Capital Power’s efforts. Genesy Factory deploys C2CNT technology — carbon offset solution to high quality CNTs. CNTs have many uses, including electronics, optics, and carbon fiber replacement. According to Capital, approved by the Alberta Resources Commission in June this year, the Genes project will have the initial production capacity of 2,500 tons of CNTs and will be able to produce up to 7,500 tons annually upon completion.

The production of CNTs is only part of the plan; He said CCUS sees CCUS as a key component of the long-term solution to tackle global climate change and reduce emissions from natural gas. Combined with the integration of renewable materials, CCUS ensures sustainable energy efficiency and reliability and significantly reduces emissions. The increase in DAC technology will support our carbon dioxide goals, physically and financially, by compensating for the elimination of portfolio emissions.

According to Capital, the project in Geneva could deliver more than 3 million tons of CO annually once fully operational. 2 He said he thought the combination of technologies would be needed to achieve our goal of net carbon neutrality by 2050. DAC is a promising technology that supports our carbon dioxide efforts by physically reducing emissions in portfolios. The DAC complements other technologies in our portfolio and offers the opportunity to reduce emissions from our facilities, which may be limited due to technical or economic constraints.

Generating 1 and 2 additional 560 MW will have a total capacity of 860 MW from those units today. Part 2 1989 Part 1 came online in 1994. Capital Power plans to become an independent part of the NGCC by 2023, according to the NGCC Power Development Project. Genesee 2 will be an independent NCC unit by 2024. That means all three units in Genesis will stop using coal in the next two years, ahead of the Canadian government’s order to stop generating coal in the country by 2030. .

Delta CleanTech In early 2005, commercial carbon offset technology was in place, and in the next few years before the global financial crisis engulfed CCS, interest in several projects diminished. The company has improved the technology in the years to come, and interest in CCUS has been revived as part of environmental, social and governance initiatives in the energy industry. Increased conversion from coal to gas provided opportunities to expand the team’s system in conjunction with efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

Alison Oil and Gas, Alison Oil’s technology innovation partner, is a long-established service provider in Alberta. “Delta clinker technology has been developed in the factory, which can reduce caps [capital expenditure] Enable cost and quick setup. “

Allison Delta CleanTech “used a number of design tools, including PDOEngine, to create a solution that could handle both. [coal and natural gas]. To achieve this, we need to know how to withstand the different compounds of each exhaust gas. Coal-fired exhaust gas has high CO2 Concentration, when a natural gas-fired exhaust gas has a low CO2 Note, the amount of exhaust gas required for natural gas storage is three times that of coal. With this technology, both plants can match operating data with an absolute difference of less than ± 5%. Captured CO2More than 99.9 mol% dry … Suitable for carbon nanotubes.

Allison said. Power Carbon nanoparticles can be used in the cement industry, CNTs can improve the mechanical properties of materials, carrying and bonding strengths. Arrested CO2 Used in advanced oil recovery operations – there are many benefits, he said, “Today there are many new technologies that offer a wide range of commercial applications for captured CO.2Such as methanol / ethanol production, bioplastic production and others. Allison emissions technology “will begin to reduce emissions quickly and efficiently by reducing environmental damage and reducing the costs associated with carbon taxes,” Alison said. Canada’s carbon tax is projected to increase to $ 170 per ton by 2030, and individual counties have the potential to increase that further.
