Innovative Combustion

Since 2006 Enel has been working with ITEA in developing pressurized oxy-combustion technology.

With this technology, the fuel is burned with oxygen instead of air, producing a flue stream of CO2  and steam without nitrogen. From this stream the CO2 is relatively easily removed.

ITEA patented in Gioia del Colle (Bari, in the region of Puglia) an innovative 5 MWt system for the oxygen combustion in various types of fuel, in order to verify the extension of the project to coal.
