Abstract: This study evaluates three different solvent absorption processes for the pre-combustion capture of CO2 for a black coal IGCC (Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle) power-plant, with the aim of determining the best solvent process for pre-combustion capture. The three solvent processes are MDEA (mono diethanolamine), hot potassium carbonate and Selexol™. The study involves detailed thermodynamic models of the entrained flow gasifier, synthesis gas processes, CO2 capture process and the gas turbine and steam turbine combined cycle plant.
