Study on heat integration of supercritical coal-fired power plant with post-combustion CO₂ capture process through process simulation (2015)
Journal Article
Liu, X., Chen, J., Luo, X., Wang, M., & Meng, H. (2015). Study on heat integration of supercritical coal-fired power plant with post-combustion CO₂ capture process through process simulation. Fuel, 158(October), (625-633). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2015.06.033. ISSN 0016-2361

Coal-fired power plant (CFPP) is one of the main sources of anthropogenic CO₂ emissions. Capturing CO₂ from CFPP by post-combustion process plays an important role to mitigate CO₂ emissions. However, a significant thermal efficiency drop was observed... Read More

Modelling and process analysis of hybrid hydration-absorption column for ethylene recovery from refinery dry gas (2015)
Journal Article
Luo, X., Wang, M., Li, X., Li, Y., Chen, C., & Sui, H. (2015). Modelling and process analysis of hybrid hydration-absorption column for ethylene recovery from refinery dry gas. Fuel, 158(October), (424-434). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2015.05.035. ISSN 0016-2361

Effective recovery of ethylene from dry gas plays an increasingly important role to improve economic performance of refineries. Conventional approaches such as cryogenic separation and cold oil absorption are energy consuming. Hybrid hydration–absorp... Read More

Heat integration of natural gas combined cycle power plant integrated with post-combustion CO₂ capture and compression (2015)
Journal Article
Luo, X., Wang, M., & Chen, J. (2015). Heat integration of natural gas combined cycle power plant integrated with post-combustion CO₂ capture and compression. Fuel, 151(July), 110-117. doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2015.01.030

Carbon capture for fossil fuel power generation draws an increasing attention because of significant challenges of global climate change. This study aims to explore the integration of a 453 MWe natural gas combined cycle (NGCC) power plant with an ME... Read More

Simulation-based techno-economic evaluation for optimal design of CO₂ transport pipeline network (2014)
Journal Article
Luo, X., Wang, M., Oko, E., & Okezue, C. (2014). Simulation-based techno-economic evaluation for optimal design of CO₂ transport pipeline network. Applied energy, 132(November), (610-620). doi:10.1016/j.apenergy.2014.07.063. ISSN 0306-2619

For large volumes of carbon dioxide (CO₂) onshore and offshore transportation, pipeline is considered the preferred method. This paper presents a study of the pipeline network planned in the Humber region of the UK. Steady state process simulation mo... Read More
