There is considerable interest in identifying carbon dioxide capture processes that can be incorporated within Integrated Gasification and Combined Cycle (IGCC) systems. In this paper, two novel adsorption based process configurations are proposed to operate in the temperature window (250-500 {ring operator}C) suitable for an IGCC process after the water gas shift reactor. These process configurations are numerically simulated with an in-house simulator MINSA (Monash Integrated Numerical Simulator for Adsorption), and the simulation results indicate that good performance can be achieved with low operating cost. Carbon dioxide purity of greater than 95% and carbon dioxide recovery of greater than 90% can be obtained by both process options.
