The CO2 capture in the combustion process using zeolites impregnated with amine compounds – CO2ZeoCap

The CO2 capture in the combustion process using zeolites impregnated with amine compounds – CO2ZeoCap

Implementation period: 2013-01-01 - 2016-12-31

Type: National

Division: The Division of Applied Geochemistry and Environmental Engineering

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.
