Mitigating coal and lignite plants’ environmental impact and foster sCO2 technology’s acceptance
To reduce water consumption by 100% by avoiding the use of water in the thermodynamic cycle loop/heat rejection section with air-cooling and thus enabling geographical flexibility.
- To reduce CO2 emissions and fossil fuel consumption for an equivalent power output.
- To enable potential addition of a CO2 capture solution by a post-combustion capture system.
Assess the benefits of the solution through a comprehensive Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA)
- To develop a methodology fostering the overall acceptance of sCO2 technology.
To reduce metal alloys needs for turbomachinery and the overall environmental footprint of the plant by at least 25% through size reduction of power block’s components/increase in power density.
