About the Project

This project will comprise a process modelling study of syngas production in conjunction with a combined cycle gas turbine with CCS using an amine capture plant. Process modelling, using either ASPEN, gPROMS or the SimSci software packages will be used to investigate the technical performance and economics of this combined system, allowing its optimisation from a performance and/or economic viewpoint. This will draw on the experimental data available from a pilot scale operation of a Turbec T100 gas turbine connected to an Amine capture plant at the UKCCSRC PACT facilities.
