Oxy-fuel Combustion for Environmentally Sound Energy Production

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced. Ever since the industrial revolution began about 150 years ago, man-made activities have added significant quantities of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the largest contributor, accounting for more than 63% of the total that contributes to global warming. Oxy-fuel combustion has been recognized as a promising technology for CO2 capture as it produces a high CO2 concentration flue gas. Combustion of pure biomass in an oxy-fuel power plant could yield a significant, additional CO2 reduction, or even lead to negative emissions of CO2 from power production.
