ThermoEnergy & Babcock Power Form New Company to Develop and Commercialize a New Clean Coal Carbon Capture Technology
This patented new technology represents a totally different thermodynamic approach in power plant design. Based on high pressure oxy-fuel chemistry, TIPS combines the combustion of carbonaceous fuels, including coal, oil, natural gas, municipal waste and biomass, into energy with near-zero air emissions and no smoke stack. In addition, it effectively captures carbon dioxide (“CO2″) in clean, pressurized liquid form ready for sequestration or beneficial reuse, such as enhanced oil recovery. The TIPS technology promises to achieve greater fossil-fuel power plant thermal efficiency due to its novel and patented process design. Coupled with the recovery of pipeline quality liquid CO2, TIPS is expected to have an economic and environmental edge over competing carbon capture technologies.
“Planned TIPS industrial heat and power plants represent an ideal solution for many US infrastructure industries,” said
“The progression of the TIPS technology coincides well with the timeline of anticipated forthcoming CO2 legislation,” stated
