Unformatted text preview: pipelines, processing over 277 tons/day of flue gas. The flue will be fed to a separation system which treats the flue gas for impurities and separates 120tons/day of 99% pure carbon dioxide for reduction. The pure carbon dioxide product is directed to an array of solar reactors where it is converted to carbon monoxide and oxygen. Based on a ten hour day, approximately 3.8 tons/day of carbon monoxide and 1.76 tons/day of oxygen are obtained. The process reduces the power plants CO 2 emissions by 0.3% The possibility of the carbon dioxide reduction system was also considered for alteration of the Martian atmosphere. It is concluded that solar reduction of CO 2 would not be an affective tool for altering the Martian atmosphere. It is, however, a possibility for long-term manned missions because it could supply O 2 to support a local contained habitat, and supply a CO as fuel....
