Oxyfuel Combustion: Utilizing Heat and Power from Fuels While Capturing Carbon

Reacting Flows Department

Combustion Research Facility

Sandia National Labs


For stationary combustion applications, such as furnaces and boilers, oxyfuel combustion technology offers opportunities for significant reductions in emissions, improvements in thermal efficiency (of the combustion process itself), and for capturing carbon dioxide for subsequent utilization or sequestration. Depending on the application, oxyfuel combustion can be employed with or without significant flue gas recirculation, having a strong influence on fluid dynamics, flame temperature, thermal radiation, and detailed transport and chemistry in the flame zone. An overview of past and current research at Sandia and elsewhere on oxyfuel combustion will be presented, as well as future trends such as development of oxyfuel combustion for transport applications.
