Advances in Carbon Capture reviews major implementations of CO2 capture, including absorption, adsorption, permeation and biological techniques. For each approach, key benefits and drawbacks of separation methods and technologies, perspectives on CO2 reuse and conversion, and pathways for future CO2 capture research are explored in depth. The work presents a comprehensive comparison of capture technologies. In addition, the alternatives for CO2 separation from various feeds are investigated based on process economics, flexibility, industrial aspects, purification level and environmental viewpoints.

Key Features

  • Explores key CO2 separation and compare technologies in terms of provable advantages and limitations
  • Analyzes all critical CO2 capture methods in tandem with related technologies
  • Introduces a panorama of various applications of CO2 capture
