HYDRATE PROCESSES FOR CO2 CAPTURE AND SCALE UP USING A NEW APPARATUS. Englezos, Peter; Ripmeester, John A.; Kumar, Rajnish; Linga, Praveen
One of the new approaches for capturing carbon dioxide from treated flue gas (post-combustion capture) and fuel gas (pre-combustion capture) is based on gas hydrate crystallization. The presence of small amount of tetrahydrofuran (THF) substantially reduces the hydrate formation pressure from a flue (CO2/N2) gas mixture and offers the possibility to capture CO2 at medium pressures . A conceptual flow sheet for a medium pressure hydrate process for pre-combustion capture from a fuel gas (CO2/H2) was also developed and presented. In order to test the hydrate-based separation processes for pre and post combustion capture of CO2 at a larger scale a new apparatus that can operate with different gas/water contact modes is set up and presented.
