Vattenfall Schwarze Pumpe project - Definition, glossary, details
The objective of this project initiated by Vattenfall is to validate
the engineering work, to gain better understanding about the working of oxyfuel
combustion technology and demonstrate such capture technology. This project is
also known as the CO2-Free Power Plant Project.
The 30 MW coal fired pilot plant combusts lignite and
hard coal in a mixture of oxygen and recirculated CO2 containing
water vapour. The flue gas is then treated and contaminants are removed. The
water will then be condensed and the concentrated CO2 compressed
into a liquid. The capture capacity of the Schwarze Pumpe plant is
approximately 75,000 tonnes per year. The CO2 capture rate is over
90%, and the plant had captured approximately 1000 tonnes of CO2
using the oxyfuel method.
