This paper is evaluating the conceptual design, thermodynamic modeling and simulation and techno-economic assessments of hydrogen-based power generation using bioglycerol reforming at industrial scale with and without carbon capture. The power plant concepts generated about 500 MW net power output. The power plant designs of bioglycerol reforming were thermodynamic modeled and simulated to produce mass and energy balances for quantification of key plant performance indicators (e.g. bioglycerol consumption, energy efficiency, ancillary energy consumption, specific CO2 emissions, capital and operational costs etc.). A particular accent is put on assessment of reforming unit operation conditions, process integration issues of bioglycerol reforming unit and the syngas conditioning line with carbon capture unit, modeling and simulation of whole plant, thermal and power integration of various plant sub-systems by pinch analysis.
