Abstract
The average concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere has been increasing since the start of the industrial revolution in the 18th century from 280 ppm to 385 ppm nowadays, and continues to increase because of the enormous human usage of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal). This can strongly affect the climate, causing the Earth’s surface to warm up, the so called ‘amplified greenhouse effect’. To alleviate these environmental concerns regarding the current CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) is investigated as one of the possible routes. Due to the acidic character of CO2, basic oxides are expected to be suitable sorbents. Hydrotalcite, a n...
