Praxair and Foster Wheeler Form Alliance to Pursue Clean Coal Demonstration Projects

Monday, September 17, 2007
Article Type: Cited

Praxair and Foster Wheeler have signed a multi-year agreement to pursue demonstration projects that will incorporate clean coal technologies and integrated oxy-coal combustion systems into coal-fired electric generating plants.

The two companies have agreed to share technical information to ensure successful integration of the combined systems.

Under the agreement, Foster Wheeler will develop and supply steam generators using oxy-coal combustion technology that can be installed in new or existing coal-fired power plants.

Foster Wheeler expects that its first applications of oxy-coal combustion technology would involve the company's circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) steam generators, and expects that the technology will be applicable to pulverized-coal (PC) steam generators as well.

For this project, Praxair will provide the upstream oxygen-supply facilities and the downstream CO2 capture and gas-processing technologies and equipment.
