Abstract

One of the key challenges for the implementation of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) is the reduction of the CO2 capture costs derived by their applications in actual power plants. The research of new technologies based on more efficient materials and more efficient design for integration of CO2 capture technologies in power cycles, is a promising way to ensure, in the medium term, costs and energy performances comparable to the actual power plant without CCS. ZECOMIX experimental platform represents the ENEA proposal for this challenge and it can be count among the Research Infrastructures more innovative in Europe. The aim of this work is to present the first results of commissioning plant tests. Therefore this work is focused on the planning of future experimental activities in order to demonstrate the feasibility of the high temperature solid sorbent CO2 sorption process, applied to a syngas derived from coal gasification.
