Babcock Power and ThermoEnergy to Develop 'TIPS' Clean Coal Technology

Tuesday, Apr 29, 2008
Article Type: Cited 

Babcock Power based in Danvers, Massachusetts and ThermoEnergy Corporation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding as a prelude to the formation of a joint effort to commercialize the Company's zero air emission power plant design called ThermoEnergy Integrated Power System (TIPS).

Based on pressurized oxy-fuel combustion technology, TIPS converts coal, natural gas, oil, and biomass into energy with near-zero air emissions.

In addition, it captures CO2 in a pressurized form ready for sequestration or beneficial reuse such as enhanced oil recovery.

"The simplicity and efficiency of the TIPS approach offers a reliable and cost effective design for carbon-capture, near-zero emission power plants," said Alex Fassbender, President of ThermoEnergy Power Systems.

"With relatively few unit operations, TIPS enhances power plant reliability, while its process efficiency comes from recovering the latent heat of vaporization of produced and entrained water."
