MOLCAR workshops 19-Jul-2022

You are invited to take part in the on-line seminar on the project entitled “Modular system based on Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells with tailored composite membranes designed for specific flue gas compositions oriented into CCS integration with an industrial power plant” – MOLCAR. 

During the seminar representatives of the project consortium: Warsaw University of Technology (Project Promotor), Fuel Cell Poland and the Norwegian partner – SINTEF AS will present the results achieved so far within the scope of work packages currently carried out.

After the presentation, there will be a 30-minute q&a session.

 

The seminar will take place on 19-Jul-2022 at 9:30 via the zoom platform and you are welcome to join by clicking the link.

Please note that you have to be a registered zoom-user.

 

 

 

About the project: 

The project is focused on research and development oriented at constructing a Carbon Capture and Storage/Utilization (CCS) system based on molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFC) operating at flue gas stream, producing electricity and gas “Sabatier ready” for power-to-gas applications. Such a unit can be the key component of energy storage systems which carries into effect the power-to-gas concept. In such systems, the excess electricity from intermittent sources (wind and solar) is used to generate synthetic fuels. Additionally, MCFC aid in increasing the flexibility of operation of conventional power units, especially in the light of the expected frequent shutdowns as centrally disposed units. Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells offer several advantages over amine installations which have an established position in the market. The Project focuses on the concept development, design, construction and experimental studies of a prototype 10 kW-class system with MCFC stack, which exhibits carbon capture in excess of 90% for coal fired power in MCFC (with negative energy penalty –4 MW/kg), resulting in the additional power of approximately 30%. The MCFC stack has a modular design which makes it possible to integrate several of such units to build larger CCS systems. Carbon Dioxide can be later re-used for the production of synthetic fuels using excess electricity from intermittent sources which allows integration of the electrical and gas grids (sector coupling) and which results in higher flexibility and security of energy supply. Thanks to that, the gas grid becomes a energy storage system. The importance of this aspect has to be noted with respect to large scale CCS. MCFC-based systems are built, contrary to other fuel cells which operated only in sub-kW scale.

The Project co-funded from the Norway Grants 2014-2021 via the National Centre of Research and Development.
