We evaluate CCGT plants with different variations of post combustion capture using amine solvents, covering a range of options, including solvent storage, partial capture and shifting the energy penalty in time. The analysis is based on the UK electricity system in Downsizing the capture facility could be attractive for low-merit plants, i. Solvent storage enables electricity generation to be decoupled in time from the energy penalty associated with carbon capture.
Beyond a few minutes of solvent storage, substantial tanks would be needed. Recommended or similar items.
