Catalyst-aided CO2 Capture and Utilization in Cement-based Industry

By: Emma Kwarteng Brakwah

As we look at minimizing the cost of CO2 capture process by removing the desorption unit and its ancillary equipment, there is also a need to pay attention to the size of the absorption column as it equally translates into cost. Smaller absorption columns result in minimal cost compared to bigger absorption columns.

Did you know that 1 + 1 is not always 2?

By: Dzifa Nugloze

When 250 mL of water is added to 250 mL of water or when 250 mL of alcohol is added to 250 mL of alcohol, the final volume will always be 500 mL, as expected. However, when the same water is added to an equal volume of alcohol, the final volume is about 10% less than the original volume of the two liquids. How?
