Storage and Utilization of CO2 in Ready-mix Concrete Using CO2-loaded Aqueous Inorganic Solvent

By: Benjamin Asare

Recently, there has been significant attention focused on utilizing captured CO2 to produce valuable materials. An example is sequestering CO2 through mineral carbonation and converting it into a commercially valuable product (Jang et al., 2016. Constr Build Mater, vol. 127, pp. 762–773, Elsevier Ltd).....

Performance Evaluation of a New Novel Amine Bi-Blend Solvent in a Catalyst Aided CO2 Capture Process in a Full Cycle Mini Pilot Plant

By: Sophia Ekanem

The amine-based post-combustion capture method utilizes reactive solvents, amines, to absorb CO2 from industrial flue gas. Despite its proven success, this method faces a significant challenge due to its high energy requirements. Efforts have been made to enhance the process’s efficiency, particularly in reducing its energy demand. One such endeavor involves the development of solvents […]

Heat Stable Salts (HSSs) Affecting the Foam Tendancy of the Amine Solvent

By: Dr. Teeradet Supap and Jessica Narku-Tetteh

The fundamentals of chemistry can help us to understand why heat stable salts (HSSs) make an amine solution more prone to foaming. Foaming is one of the operational issues that can reduce the ability of an amine to capture the CO2.
