Energy-Efficient Extraction of Acid Gas From Flue Gases

Amine-based post-combustion carbon capture systems represent a proven technology for decreasing carbon emission from coal-fired power plants and other high-emission operations. This invention represents the latest in a long line of research to design better and more energy-efficient carbon capture systems. We introduce both capital cost-neutral modifications which significantly reduce energy costs as well as new process equipment which can cut energy costs in half.
