Oxy-fuel combustion is currently one the promising options for carbon capture. Nonetheless, there are some technical barriers that hinder the deployment of the technology in commercial scale, being the oxygen production the most energetic costly step. There is an opportunity to overcome this issue by using waste oxygen produced at the Mirfa Plant situated in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The facility currently produces gaseous nitrogen for injection into on-shore reservoirs and its waste stream rich in oxygen is vented to the atmosphere. This work focuses on finding a better application for the waste stream based on oxy-fuel technologies simulated in Aspen Plus.
