Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture


Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering

About the Project

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants. The challenges are: high capital cost and energy consumption for solvent regeneration. The new solution is to apply process intensification technology for solvent based carbon capture. This project aims to evaluate solvent based intensified carbon capture for gas-fired power plants based on process modelling and simulation. The questions to be answered are: size of the equipment such as Absorber and Stripper, capital costs, operating costs, energy consumption to capture per tonne of CO2 and operational flexibility.

Funding Notes

Applicants should have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree in chemical engineering, chemistry, bioscience or a related technical subject, or have an appropriate MSc qualification.

If English is not your first language then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) average of 6.5 or above with at least 6.0 in each component.
