Jupiter Oxygen Starts Operation of its Third Generation Oxy Fuel Development Unit in Hammond, Indiana

 

October 2007 - Jupiter Oxygen is now operating a 15 MWthermal oxy-fuel test facility in Hammond, Indiana. The Hammond test facility is Jupiter Oxygen’s 3rd generation oxy-fuel development unit. The unit and testing are being done with the Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory.

 

This research and development facility is testing a 50 MMBtu oxy-fuel burner that serves a 5 MWe equivalent test unit, and provides developmental engineering for power plant retrofits as well as new build plants. The development work is based upon Jupiter’s oxy-fuel technology and NETL’s Integrated Pollution Removal [IPR] technology. Jupiter Oxygen will advance the creation of a close to zero emission fossil fuel power plant, limiting NOx, SOx, particulate and mercury emissions to ultra low levels even without CO2 sequestration. The plants will be fully equipped for CO2 capture and prepared for CO2 sequestration pipelines.
