Topic Area 4: Novel Concepts for the Compression ofLarge Volumes of CarbonDioxideZero emission power plants that are designed to capture CO2 have asignificantseparation and compression penalty. This penalty can range from 8 ? 12 %points depending on the exhaust state (temperature, pressure and purity) ofthecarbon dioxide prior to compression. Final pressures for the compressedCO2would typically be on the order of 1,500 psia in a super critical state forpipe line transportation. Typically flow rates are on the order of 600,000?700,000 lbm/hr (based on a 400 MW IGCC).To minimize this penalty the government is seeking novel concepts for thecompression of large volumes of CO2 that would be more efficient and costlessthan today?s options. Applications must provide a clear technicalexplanationdetailing the cost and efficiency benefits for the proposed approach.Applications must provide an option for the development of a test plan forthetesting of their technology at the full- or module-scale at the DOE?sFutureGenproject in the 2012 ? 2015 time frame.Application Development and Project ImplementationApplications in Topic Area 4 must include a phased approach showing alogicalorganization of work and that allows for ?go? and ?no-go? decisions at theconclusion of each phase. The following phases are required: PhaseI?ConceptualDesign and R D Implementation Plan: Concept to Commercial Deployment; PhaseII?Detailed Design and Validation Test Program; and Phase III? SystemFabricationand Testing. It is expected that applications will have more detailsregardingPhase I work. Since Phases II and III are contingent on Phase I resultsspecific details are not expected. However Phases II and III must provideananticipated scope, level of effort, and approach. The R D ImplementationPlan,a major deliverable of Phase I, will provide the basis for negotiating andauthorizing Phase II work and anticipating the magnitude of the Phase IIIeffort. Offers are encouraged to read the section of the solicitationtitled?General Guidance for Preparing the Research Development ImplementationPlan?.Technologies that are developed beyond the conceptual phase may besubmitted asPhase II and Phase III applications. Technologies that are alreadydevelopedbeyond the detailed design phase may be submitted as Phase IIIapplications.It is anticipated that work subsequent to Phase III, such as full-scalepre-commercial testing, could be supported through other competitiveinitiatives.It is expected that in this Topic Area Phase I efforts will be between 12and18 months, Phase II efforts will be between 18 and 24 months, and Phase IIIefforts will be between 12 and 24 months. These periods of performanceareintended to be consistent with the goal of providing a commercial offeringinthe 2010-2011 time frame.
