Capturing and storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by power plants could play a major role in minimizing climate change. In this study a postcombustion CO2 capture plant using MEA is designed, simulated, and optimized using the UniSim process simulator. The focus of this work is the subsequent optimal operation and control of the plant(More)
The design and optimization of a natural gas to hydrocarbon liquids (GTL) process is considered, mainly from the view of maximizing the variable income during operation. Autothermal reforming (ATR) is used for synthesis gas production. The kinetic model for Fischer Tropsch (FT) reactions is the one given by Iglesia et al. for a cobalt-based FT reactor. For(More)
Capturing and storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by power plants and factories before it is emitted to the atmosphere could play a major role in minimizing climate change. Among of the different technologies, aqueous amine absorption/stripping is a promising one. In this study 5 different configurations for aqueous absorption/stripping(More)
