Matching Funding Support for Carbon Management Research Group . Year-3

Grants and Contracts Details


The work outlined in the proposed project is on]going research conducted in the Carbon Management Research Group (CMRG). The CMRG is an industry]government]academic consortium dedicated to minimizing current and emerging environmental problems attributed to combustion products from coalfired electric power plants. The industrial members of the CMRG include American Electric Power (AEP), Big Rivers Electric Corporation, Duke Energy, East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC), E]ON U.S., Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and the Illinois Clean Coal Institute (ICCI). The Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence (KY]DEDI) is a government partner which provides a cost]share funding for the program. The purpose of this consortium is to maintain and strengthen coal]fired power plantfs comparative advantage as a low]cost producer of electricity, while simultaneously improving the quality of environment. The CMRG will initially focus on reducing such emissions from Kentuckyfs existing and aging fleet of coal]fired electric power plants in order to extend the useful lifetime of these plants. Over time, the CMRG will redirect its efforts toward mitigating potential emissions from newer, advanced generation technologies such as chemical looping combustion, supercritical pulverized coal combustion and integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plants.
