Adsorbent materials for the separation and purification of carbon dioxide

  • Two separations are necessary to enable the post-combustion capture of CO2.
    The fraction of CO2 in a flue gas stream must first be separated from the diluents
    present and then the concentrated stream of CO2 must be thoroughly dried in
    order for it to be compressed for sequestration. This work characterized the first
    non-porous, amine grafted nano-titanate adsorbents and probed their
    characteristics for CO2 removal from flue gas. This work also established the
    adsorbent, instrumentation, and process considerations prerequisite to
    developing an adsorptive CO2 drying process.
