Clean coal research project awarded $3mn from DOE

FuelCell Energy, Inc. said it has received a $3 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to evaluate the use of Direct FuelCells (DFC) to separate carbon dioxide (CO2) from the emissions of existing coal-fired power plants.

The three year research project will involve system design, cost analysis and long-term testing of a multi-kilowatt DFC stack, with funding occurring in stages upon reaching certain progress milestones.

Successfully attaining the project goals of capturing at least 90 percent of the CO2 from the coal-fired power plant emissions within the DOE's cost targets may lead to a demonstration project with a DFC power plant installation at an existing coal-fired power plant.
