Kinetic Interactions of Pollutants in Oxy-Coal Combustion


Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Project

Oxy-coal combustion with recycled flue gas is one of the key technologies considered for carbon capture. This research will investigate the impact of the change of oxidant environment on the gas-phase oxidation pathways and develop models to assess the importance of heterogeneous chemistry in mercury oxidation and sulphur species transformation. The predictive models will be validated against pilot-scale test results and will be applied to understand the physical and chemical properties of unburned carbon particles in coal fly ashes that promote mercury species adsorption and Hg(0) oxidation processes.
