Economic low carbon power production and emissions control for future and flexible biomass co-fired power stations
One main objective of the RFCS-funded research project BiOxySorb is an experimental and techno-economic assessment of 1st and 2nd generation biomass co-combustion under both air- and oxy-fuel conditions at various co-combustion ratios.  This shall be investigated in combination with flexible, low cost SOx, HCl and Hg emission control by sorbent injection.
Boiler Corrosion und Oxy-fuel Conditions
Primary objective of the RFCS-funded OxyCorr-project is evaluation of deposition and material related limitations on boiler performance and lifetime of a highly efficient, CO2-free, oxy-fuel operated power plants.

Results obtained from the project aim at determining the usability of advanced and conventional boiler materials and are dedicated for the development and assessment of advanced process layout and boiler design strategies that enhance plant efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.

Oxyfuel FBC
Official Website of the 2nd International Workshop on Oxyfuel FBC Technology
Fluidized bed combustion technology has become a viable option for the application of the oxyfuel process. In addition to the general objectives of the workshop, the Calcium Looping process with sorbent regeneration under oxyfuel conditions has been addressed. Workshop topics included results from experiments and simulations as well as approaches to process design, scale-up and other challenges.
Development of Scale-Up Methodology and Simulation Tools for the Demonstration of PC-FLOX Burner Technology in Full-Scale Utility Boilers

This project aims to develop a scale-up methodology and simulation tools which are required for the implementation of pulverised coal flameless oxidation (PC-FLOX) burners in utility plants. Substantial pilot (0.5MWth) experimental investigation will be the backbone in order to support the development and validation of scale-up methodology and CFD FLOX-specific sub-models. To develop simulation tools, these CFD FLOX-specific sub-models will be integrated into commercial CFD codes. A CFD modelling, experimental results and industrial partners’ expertise will lead to the development of the scale-up methodology for full-scale PC-FLOX burners. A CFD study and techno-economic analysis of utility plants operated with PC-FLOX burners will be carried out.

MODeling and experimental validation of CALcium looping CO2-capture process for near-zero CO2-emission power plants
The EU-RFCS funded CALMOD project aim is to bring the CaL process for post-combustion CO2 capture forward to commercial scale mainly through the development of advanced modeling and simulation tools for industrial process application. The results will bring forward a new technology that offers a highly efficient and low cost-alternative to other existing technologies for post-combustion CO2 capture.

DEVelopment of High Performance SCR-CATalysts Related to Different Fuel Types
The goal of the project is to develop special SCR-DeNOx-catalysts for coal, bio-fuel and co-combustion with respect to efficient NOx-reduction, high mercury oxidation and low SO2-SO3-conversion. Therefore based on the further development of existing catalyst technology, innovative catalyst designs for bio-fuel applications or the use of nano-technology is applied. With respect to modified SCR-technology, also the effect on downstream air pollution control devices like FGD systems is investigated. Furthermore a 3D-CFD model is used and improved for the modeling of the SCR-system.

REcovered Fuels COMbined with BIOmass
The RECOMBIO project is concerned with developments and demonstrations of innovative approaches to the high efficient co-utilisation of low quality biomasses and Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF) produced from municipal solid waste (MSW) for electricity production and combined heat and power (CHP) usage, at competitive costs, high plant availability and advanced energy efficiency.
