Abstract
Within the challenge of mitigating climate change, CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is considered as promising option to reduce the atmospheric CO2 emissions. In power plants three different concepts have emerged: post-combustion applying an end of pipe technology to remove CO2, oxy-fuel combustion and pre-combustion (i.e. H2 routes). The main technologies applicable for CO2 separation are chemical absorption with amines, physical absorption and adsorption and membrane processes.The competitiveness of these technologies depends on the characteristics of the gas to be treated, the operating conditions and the purification purpose which influence the separation effic...
