Project Description: 

ENhanced CAPture of Carbon Dioxide (CO2), or ENCAP, was a multifaceted research project consisted of six sub-projects: process and power systems, pre-combustion decarbonization technologies, oxygen (O2)/carbon dioxide (CO2) ombustion (oxy-fuel) boiler technologies, chemical looping combustion, high-temperature oxygen generation for power cycles, and novel pre-combustion capture concepts. The goals were to develop promising pre-combustion CO2 capture technologies (including O2/CO2 combustion technologies) and propose the most competitive demonstration power plant technology, design, process scheme, and component choices. All projects were successfully completed by March 2009.

Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Berlin meeting in September 2005.
