Objective: Together with other industrialised nations Austria had agreed in
reducing its CO2 production. In this research project a cycle for fossil fuel firing is
designed based on the
developed in H.Jericha ,1987, Efficiency steam cycle with internal combustion of hydrogen and
stoichiometric oxygen for turbines and piston engines, Int.J.Hydr.Energy, Vol.12, No.5. This
cycle - first designed for the firing of hydrogen and oxygen - shall be investigated for its ability
to work with a fluid of steam and CO2 and to internally burn methane and oxygen. In such a cycle
there is the possibility to separate all of the CO2 produced during combustion from the exhaust gas.
This CO2 then can be stored or reused in other technical processes. The thermodynamic parameters of
such a cycle, the turbomachinery and the heat exchangers shall be developed.
