Abstract

From December 2017 to February 2018 the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM DA), operated a test campaign capturing CO2 by use of monoethanolamine (MEA) in a 80 to 200 ton CO2 per day demonstration unit. The primary objective was to provide experimental evidence for reducing operational as well as capital costs of CO2 capture. For cost assessment a selection of the test cases has been used as a basis for estimating cost of full scale amine based CO2 capture for a large combined cycle gas turbine based (CCGT) power plant. The cost of CO2 avoided is presented for these cases and the case with the lowest cost of CO2 avoided has been furthered investigated by a parameter study. The cost assessment is presented relative to two earlier MEA campaigns at TCM. A reduction in cost of CO2 avoided up to 18% was justified by experiments while further improvements were made plausible theoretically.
