Amine scrubbing has been used to separate carbon dioxide (CO2) from natural gas and hydrogen since 1930. It is a robust technology and is ready to be tested and used on a larger scale for CO2 capture from coal-fired power plants. The minimum work requirement to separate CO2 from coal-fired flue gas and compress CO2 to 150 bar is 0.11 megawatt-hours per metric ton of CO2. Process and solvent improvements should reduce the energy consumption to 0.2 megawatt-hour per ton of CO2. Other advanced… 
CO2 Capture, Transportation, and Storage Technology
Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) can be deployed primarily at major point sources of CO2, such as fossil fuel-fired power plants. For CO2 capture, solution absorption as represented by
Amine-Based Carbon Capture Technology: CO2 scrubber prototype fabrication and amine scrubbing efficiency testing
Fossil fuel burning and industrial gaseous emissions are releasing CO 2 into the atmosphere which is responsible for at least 55 % of global warming today. Pakistan is one of the most severely hit
Aqueous piperazine as the new standard for CO2 capture technology
Abstract Amine scrubbing will be the technology of choice for CO2 capture from coal-fired power plants. 7 m monoethanolamine (30 wt% MEA) has been the standard solvent to represent the capability of
CO2 capture in a multistage CFB: Part I: Number of stages
The most common technology for postcombustion of CO2 capture is the amine solvent scrubber. The energy consumption for capturing CO2 from flue gases using amine solvent technology is 15–30% of the
Carbon dioxide capture using solid sorbents in a fluidized bed with reduced pressure regeneration in a downer
The most common technology for postcombustion CO2 capture for existing power plants is the amine solvent scrubber. The energy consumption for capturing CO2 from flue gases using amine solvent
Amine screening for flue gas CO2 capture at coal-fired power plants: Should the heat of desorption be high, low or in between?
Researchers worldwide have been measuring properties of amine-based scrubbing solutions, seeking alternatives to aqueous monoethanolamine that will reduce the costs of flue gas CO 2 capture (FGCC).
Thermal degradation of amines for CO2 capture
Amine scrubbing will be an important technology for CO2 capture and storage. The degradation of the amine at 100–150 °C limits the maximum T/P and therefore the energy performance of the solvent
Novel scrubbing system for post-combustion CO2 capture and recovery: Experimental studies
Abstract Power plant emissions of flue gas to the atmosphere releases considerable CO 2 which is considered to be the main contributor to global warming. Several gas absorption techniques are being
Stripper configurations for CO2 capture by aqueous monoethanolamine
Abstract Absorption/stripping with amine solvents is a practical tail end technology for CO 2 capture from coal-fired power plants. One of the inhibiting costs of this technology is the energy
Simultaneous carbon dioxide capture and utilization using thermal desalination reject brine
This study evaluated the feasibility of a chemical process which uses desalination brine to convert CO2 into useful sodium bicarbonate. The process is based on the integration of a modified Solvay


Advanced Amine Solvent Formulations and Process Integration for Near-Term CO2 Capture Success
This Phase I SBIR project investigated the economic and technical feasibility of advanced amine scrubbing systems for post-combustion CO2 capture at coal-fired power plants. Numerous combinations of
