University receives $19 million to monitor carbon storage project
Date:6/28/2010

t, which involves storage of CO2 via enhanced oil recovery, is another important step toward commercial deployment of large-scale sequestration," said Scott Tinker, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology.

The proposed project was submitted under Round 3 of the Clean Coal Power Initiative Program (CCPI), a cost-shared collaboration between the federal government and private industry to demonstrate low-emission carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies in advanced coal-based power generation. The goal of CCPI is to accelerate the readiness of advanced coal technologies for commercial deployment, ensuring that the U.S. has clean, reliable, and affordable electricity and power.

The project is designed to show that post-combustion CCS applied to existing plants can be done economically, especially when the plant has the opportunity to sequester carbon dioxide in nearby oilfields.

Scheduled to begin operating in 2014, NRG's CCS demonstration project at WA Parish will use a class of chemicals known as amines to strip CO2 from flue gas equal in quantity to that of a 60- megawatt power plant. It will be designed to capture more than 90 percent of incoming CO2, or about 400,000 tons of CO2 annuallya level that can further advance the technology's viability on a larger scale.

Gary Rochelle, professor of chemical engineering and head of the university's Luminant Carbon Management Program (LCMP), developed piperazine, one of the amines that will be tested in the new facility as a CO2 stripping agent. The LCMP will subcontract with NRG for up to $650,000 for the carbon capture portion of the project.

The Bureau of Economic Geology, through its Gulf Coast Carbon Center, has a wealth of technical experience from years of conducting CO2 storage experiments. The bureau has received more funding for CO2 storage research than any academic unit in the countr
