NABAVI, S. A. ... et al., 2015. New carbon capture materials: Novel approaches to post-combustion CO2 capture, [Presented at] Early Career Researcher Winter School of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in CCS and Cleaner Fossil Energy, Nottingham, 2015.
The most commercially viable capture method in carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been attributed to post-combustion carbon capture using chemical solvents. Although the conventional chemical solvents such as MEA solutions have high selectivity and capture capacity, they are highly corrosive and required high regeneration energy. In addition, volatilisation of MEA at elevated temperature and its release to the atmosphere can lead to major human and environment concerns. In this study two alternative carbon capture materials have been investigated.
