Abstract

The present chapter assembles all the previous chapter’s concepts and methodologies with the aim of selecting a given process design. The developed superstructure is used to simulate scenarios with different feedstocks and process topologies for co-production of electricity and hydrogen. The most representative output data are shown, and the described points of view, discussed in chapter “ Global Clean Gas Process Synthesis and Optimisation”, are here evaluated under a techno-economic and environmental assessment. Sixteen scenarios are considered encompassing four different feedstocks combined with four different plant topologies; electricity generation with syngas, electricity generation with hydrogen, hydrogen production and hydrogen production with PSA flue gas profit in the CC.
