Presented at: Second Annual Conference on Carbon Sequestration, Alexandria VA, USA, 5-8 mei 2003.

Abstract:
A promising solution for the high penalties associated with CO2 capturein power generation systems could be the use of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC's), or a combination thereof with a gas turbine (GT). A novel concept has been introduced for SOFC-GT systems with CO2 capture using a water gas shift membrane reactor burner (WGSMR-burner). Two SOFC-GT systems using this concept have been evaluated for their thermodynamic efficiency. The carbon capture penalty calculated is less than 50% of that of state-of-the-art CO2 capture systems.
