Eco-friendly coal-fired technology for stackless power plants without emissions

TECH XPLORE | Coal-fired power plants in Korea are one of the main sources of air pollutants, CO2 and the other precursor materials to ultra-fine dust particulates such as nitrogen oxide and sulfur oxide. Therefore, FEPCRC is developing key technologies for eco-friendly coal-fired stackless power generation without emissions in flue gas.

The FEP Convergence Research Center (FEPCRC) led by Director Lee Jae-goo at the Korea Institute of Energy Research has successfully developed oxy-circulating fluidized bed combustion (Oxy-CFBC) technology that reduces air pollution by over 80% and separates over 90% of CO2 emissions compared to existing power plant technology with air mode combustion.
