The aim of the project was to determine the possible use of synthetic zeolites produced from waste materials such as fly ash in CO2 capture technologies. The analysis carried out was aimed at determining the sorption potential of the examined materials. The key stage of the research involved experimental cyclic CO2 capture, which allowed determining the maximum efficiency of materials and their usefulness in this type of technologies. An important element of the project was the economic analysis, which allowed determining the costs of the project. In addition, comparisons to commercially available CO2 capture technologies using amino solutions have been made. The project involved 3 units: The Lublin University of Technology (the project partner), the University of Nottingham (UK, the project partner, and the MEERI PAS as the project leader.
