Advanced Solvents Used in B&W PGG CO2 Capture in Pilot Plant Tests
Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc. (B&W PGG) researchers have successfully captured carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from a pilot-scale, coal-fired boiler using advanced solvents and a proprietary CO2-capture process developed at the company’s research center in Barberton, Ohio. B&W PGG is an operating unit of The Babcock & Wilcox Company.
B&W PGG has conducted its first demonstration on flue gas from a coal-fired boiler at the company’s Regenerable Solvent Absorption Technology (RSATTM) Pilot Plant. Researchers were able to continuously remove more than 90 percent of the CO2 from the Small Boiler Simulator II’s flue gas stream using a fully integrated RSAT process. B&W PGG researchers are now evaluating proprietary solvents and characterizing their performance at this scale.
