NETL Carbon Capture System Using Supersonic Expansion
NETL researchers have patented a cost effective CO2 separation technology. Mainstream CO2 capture technologies use solvents to dissolve CO2 from other constituents in power plant flue gas, such as nitrogen and water vapor. Capturing CO2 prevents the gas from entering the atmosphere, but use of solvents can greatly reduce a plant’s energy efficiency. An alternative approach to separate CO2 is to use mechanical gas separation in which specific components of the gas stream are changed to either a liquid or solid phase, facilitating more effective separation...
Syngas Process Boosts Economic Feasibility of Carbon Capture And Storage
Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory (INL) have developed a process for turning captured carbon dioxide into syngas, a mixture made up primarily of hydrogen and carbon monoxide that can be used to make fuels and chemicals. The team has published its results in Green Chemistry, a publication of the Royal Society of Chemistry...
