Engineers describe a method for capturing carbon from coal-burning power plants that entails using pure oxygen for fuel combustion, thereby producing carbon-dioxide enriched flue gas that is ready for sequestration once water is condensed from it and other impurities removed. The topics include an economic comparison of oxy-coal carbon dioxide capture and storage with pre-combustion and post-combustion methods, oxy-fuel combustion on a circulating fluidized bed, pollutant formation and emissions from oxy-coal power plants, technology for compressing and purifying carbon dioxide in oxy-fuel combustion, and chemical-looping combustion for generating power and capturing carbon dioxide.
