Air Products to build CO2 purification system


Air Products is to design and construct a carbon dioxide (CO2) purification system in support of an oxyfuel technology development project.

The company has signed an agreement with the US Department of Energy (DOE), in association with a separate Cooperative Agreement between the DOE and Alstom Power Inc.

The project will use Alstom’s boiler simulation facility in Windsor, Connecticut.
CO2 purification is essential to the compression, transport and potential sequestion of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

The development project at the 15 megawatt thermal equivalent facility, to be conducted over two years beginning in mid-2009, is part of DOE’s furthering development of new and cost-effective technologies for the capture of CO2 from the existing fleet of US coal-fired power plants.
