Carbon dioxide capture by chemical absorption : a solvent comparison study

  title={Carbon dioxide capture by chemical absorption : a solvent comparison study},
  author={Anusha Kothandaraman},
In the light of increasing fears about climate change, greenhouse gas mitigation technologies have assumed growing importance. In the United States, energy related CO2 emissions accounted for 98% of the total emissions in 2007 with electricity generation accounting for 40% of the total. Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is one of the options that can enable the utilization of fossil fuels with lower CO2 emissions. Of the different technologies for CO2 capture, capture of CO2 by chemical… 
Review of solvent based carbon-dioxide capture technologies
Currently, a large proportion of global fossil fuel emissions originate from large point sources such as power generation or industrial processes. This trend is expected to continue until the year
Simulation of methyldiethanolamine-carbon dioxide-water systemusing equilibrium approach
As the climate is changing very frequently and global warming is increasing at an alarming rate, there is a need to mitigate greenhouse gases which have gained a top most priority. As the main source
Carbon capture from stationary power generation sources: A review of the current status of the technologies
The world will need greatly increased energy supply in the future for sustained economic growth, but the related CO2 emissions and the resulting climate changes are becoming major concerns. CO2 is
Improving the Carbon Capture Efficiency for Gas Power Plants through Amine-Based Absorbents
Environmental concern for our planet has changed significantly over time due to climate change, caused by an increasing population and the subsequent demand for electricity, and thus increased power
Rate studies on monoethanolamine-carbon dioxide-water system
Owing to the increase in Green House Gases in the atmosphere, the most widely known Global Warming, in the present scenario, is inevitable. Thus, to mitigate the comparatively larger amount of these
The influence of partial capture conditions on CO2 absorption in process industries
The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing rapidly which leads to serious climate damage if nothing is done to address this situation. This thesis evaluates the application of
Pre Study of CCS for a Bio Fueled CHP Plant
The environmental performance of a potential carbon capture and storage (CCS) installation at the bio fueled combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Lugnvik, Ostersund was studied with screening life
Life Cycle Assessment of Power Generation Technologies with CO2 Capture
Carbon Capture and Storage has large a potential to mitigating the CO2 emissions caused by fossil fuel powered power plants. CCS reduces the energy efficiency of the plant and increases the demand on
Simulation of carbon dioxide - monoethanolamine - water system using equilibrium approach
Carbon Dioxide is a greenhouse gas and has been identified as the prime source of global warming and climate changes. So the major challenge ahead of us is the capture and removal of CO2. Though
