Abstract: Newly built (greenfield) power plant offer the advantage of optimised integration measures to reduce the efficiency penalty associated with the application of a post-combustion CO2 capture process by wet chemical absorption. Especially, the integration of waste heat from the desorber overhead condenser of the CO2 capture unit (CCU) and from the CO2 compressor into the water-steam-cycle of the power plant offers optimisation potential.
