Final Report - ISCC (Innovative In Situ CO2 Capture Technology for Solid Fuel Gasification)

Project ID: 502743
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of the ISCC project, which aimed to develop a new process for upgrading high moisture low rank brown coals yielding three valuable products:
- a fuel gas consisting of mainly hydrogen to be used in power generation;
- a purge gas stream containing > 95 % CO2, ready for transportation to storage (CO2 capture > 90 %) or chemical fixation;
- a pre-calcined feed for a cement kiln consisting of CaO, coal ash and required additional minerals.

The report begins with a summary of the project objectives and processes proposed for the reactor functions. It goes on with a detailed description of the work packages, the experiments conducted, the work done and the results obtained under each one. Finally, there is a section with conclusions, an assessment of the project findings as a comparison with state of the art CO2 capture processes and knowledge dissemination actions and plans.
