Development of a Low-Energy Consumption CO2 Separation Method
The objective of the research is to use Na2CO3/FeOOH, a regenerable nanoporous solid sorbent, for reducing the energy required to separate and capture at least 95% of post-combustion Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from power plants to less than 1,000 kJ/kg of captured CO2 at a cost below $10/ton. The research focused on developing an environmentally friendly, widely available inorganic compound-based solid sorbent for low-energy consumption CO2 separation. Na2CO3 was used since it is cheaper than K2CO3 and more readily available. This is relevant because many technologies have already been developed for ...
