P CO2 capture (PCCC) technology has the potential to contribute significantly to the reduction of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The application of PCCC technology to reduce CO2 emissions at large point sources, such as fossil fuel-fired power plants is particularly promising. Amine-based scrubbing is the most mature PCCC technology, with 2-aminoethanol (MEA) the most widely utilized solvent. Despite the use of water wash systems to treat effluent, small amounts of the solvent and degradation… CONTINUE READING
