Process design and analysis of dual phase membanes

  1. 1. 1Process design and analysis ofdual-phase membranes foroff-shore post-combustion capturefrom gas turbinesRahul AnantharamanSINTEF Energy ResearchMichael McCann, Thijs Peters, Marie-Laure Fontaine, Partow P. Henriksen, Thor MejdellSINTEF Materials and Chemistry7thJune, 2013
  2. 2. Presentation Outline►Background►Motivation►Dual-phase membranes►Process design considerations►Process Analysis►Conclusions2
  3. 3. Background►CO2 capture from industry is an important part of thesolution for climate change mitigation►Four case studies selected in BIGCCS for CO2 capturefrom industry►CO2 emissions from off-shore facilities are some of thelargest point sources.►CO2 capture from gas turbines on board an FloatingProduction Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit one ofselected case study.3
  4. 4. Case Study►Aim: CO2 capture from 6 x 20 MW Gas Turbines (GT) on board anFPSO►GT specifications (each) Power: 20 MW (Simple cycle) Thermal efficiency: 36.4% LHV Exhaust flow: 67.4 kg/s Exhaust temperature: 466 °C CO2 concentration in exhaust: 3 vol%4
  5. 5. Challenges►All of the challenges offshore are the same as the onesfaced by on-shore industry, in addition to size, weight andstability (wave motion).►Space- and weight challenges implies the size of thecapture installations will be of importance when selectingcapture technology5
  6. 6. Process concepts►Post-combustion capture MEA – reference case Membrane contactors Dual phase membranes Supersonic expansion of CO2►Oxy-combustion capture6
  7. 7. Motivation► MEA and other solvent based capture technologies Gas-liquid interface Steam/utility requirement Require large absorber GT exhaust needs to be cooled► Membrane contactors not effective for this case► Polymeric membranes Multi-stage process due to selectivity limitations High energy consumption and membrane area/volume GT exhaust needs to be cooled7
  8. 8. Motivation►Design conceptual process with No gas – liquid interface Operate at high temperature No steam requirement Comparable or lower volume and energy consumption thanreference case8
  9. 9. Dual-Phase Membrane Concept►New interesting membrane type with potential of hightemperature operation (450°C-800°C)►Interconnected molten carbonate phase in a porousceramic support matrix of an oxygen ion conductor9

  23. 23. Conclusions►Dual phase membranes show promising performance►Preliminary results comparing to MEA process indicate lower process equipment volume Comparable/lower energy penalty for CO2 capture►It is expected that dual phase membranes will performbetter for "standard" NGCC post-combustion capture►Novel technology in early phase of development►Potential issues Membrane development and performance Feasibility of high temperature vacuum pump23
