Largest experimental oxy-fuel CFB boiler
O2GEN Project
O2GEN project focuses on one of the most important recommendations of the Zero Emission Platform´s (ZEP) report for the deployment of CCS in the European Union (EU): the use of higher O2 concentrations in oxyfuel combustion reducing the flue gas recirculation and energy penalty. The utilization of Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) oxyfuel combustion enables the reduction of the size of the boiler and the efficiency penalty, resulting in a more environmentally and economically attractive technology.
