Description: A schematic showing the operation of a oxyfuel carbon capture and storage (CCS) fossil fuel power plant. The schematic was based on the image at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7586569.stm , and the information in EOS magazine, March 2010. 1= air inlet 2= mechanical energy is supplied 3= nitrogen outlet 4= oxygen outlet 5= recycled exhaust gas inlet 6= fuel inlet (ie coal, ...) 7= cold water pipe 8= steam inlet pipe 9= steam turbine 10= steam outlet pipe 11= steam condensor 12= cooling pipe of steam condensor 13= bottom ash 14= fly-ash removal 15= sulphur + gypsum removal 16= cooler 17= water condensor (water removal) 18= mechanical energy is supplied (CO²-compressor) 19= CO² outlet Note 1: 6, 7 and 8 form the whole of the firebox < br/> Note 2: for the workings of the steam condensor (a non essential part, simply increases efficiency), see http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Surface_Condenser.png < br/>
