2010 Chinese Course

The Second APP Oxy-fuel Capacity Building Course

15-16 March 2010
Xijiao Hotel, CHINA

A Successful Course

With over 70 attendees from power stations, research organisations and universities across China, a most successful course was held.  Powerpoint presentations, in Chinese and English, are given as links on the Course Schedule below.

Introductory lecture

Progress to oxy-fuel technology deployment lecture

CCS in China from the the Global CCS Institute report

CCS transport and storage in China presentation


An oxy-fuel course was held at Xijiao Hotel Beijing, CHINA in March 2010. The course was arranged through Tsinghua University with the support of the Department of Thermal Engineering and also the China Society of Electrical Engineering (CSEE), the Thermal Power Research Institute (TPRI) , Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) and with the support of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China.

Oxy-fuel technology is a leading carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology

Conventional pf coal-fired boilers use air for combustion in which the nitrogen from the air dilutes the CO2 concentration in the flue gas. In oxy-fuel technology, combustion with oxygen typically of greater than 95% purity and recycled flue gas is used for combustion of the fuel. By recycling the flue gas, a gas consisting mainly of CO2 and water is generated, ready for sequestration without stripping of the CO2 from the gas stream. The recycled flue gas is used to control flame temperature and make up the volume of the missing N2 to ensure there is enough gas to carry the heat through the boiler. Demonstrations pilot-scale studies will lead to commercial deployment.

The course is targeted at delegates from Asian countries where understanding of oxy-fuel technology is developing, including China, India, Korea and SE Asian countries and follows the most successful course held at KEPRI in Korea in February 2009.

The course covers practical and scientific aspects, and provides the needs of two groups of participants.

The afternoon of the first day outlined underpinning science, laboratory, mathematical modeling and pilot-scale evaluation of coal. The second day, Tuesday March 16, detailed research developments, and the status of current international demonstrations, a session with a panel of experts to answer questions nominated prior by delegates.
