    capture by absorption: a review

    CO2 capture by absorption requires solvents which can meet performance criteria such as fast absorption rate, high CO2 loading capacity, low regeneration energy, low degradation rate, low corrosiveness, low environmental impact and low solvent cost. The development of a suitable solvent is central for design of decarbonised power plants ...

  • Energy-efficient stirred-tank photobioreactors for simultaneous carbon capture and municipal wastewater treatment

    Algal based wastewater treatment (WWT) technologies are attracting renewed attention because they couple energy-efficient sustainable treatment with carbon capture, and reduce the carbon footprint of the process. A low-cost energy-efficient mixed microalgal culture-based pilot WWT system, coupled with carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration, was investigated. The 21 L stirred-tank photobioreactors ...

    sequestration

    This paper presents Buckley–Leverett type analytical solutions for non–Darcy displacement of two immiscible fluids in linear and radial composite porous media. High velocity or non–Darcy flow commonly occurs in the vicinity of the wellbore because of smaller flowing cross–sectional areas. However, the effect of such non–Darcy flow has been traditionally ignored. To examine the physical behaviour ...

  • Carbon capture and clusters

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS ) announcements in 2013 were quiet – yet the award of funding to the White Rose project in early December was an encouraging sign that UK CCS momentum remains undeterred, explains Sam Botterill, CCS Technical Manager, Energy Institute. Christmas did not only come early for the White Rose project, more commonly referred to as Drax Power’s CCS Project, ...

  • Voluntary carbon market and its contributions to sustainable development: analysis of the Monte Pascoal-Pau Brazil ecological corridor

    This paper aims to analyse the co–benefits of reforestation projects developed in the voluntary carbon market based on the analysis of a single case study: the ecological corridor project Monte Pascoal-Pau Brazil, the first forest restoration project in Latin America to receive the seal climate community and biodiversity (CCB). To achieve this purpose, the research combined: i) primary ...

  • Efficiency of carbon sequestration by added reactive nitrogen in ocean fertilisation

    Addition of limiting nutrients to the surface waters of the deep ocean will lead to increased photosynthesis and associated biological productivity. Some of carbon taken up by phytoplankton will sink to the deep ocean, providing sequestration of carbon in the deep ocean. This paper considers nitrogen as the added nutrient and determines the losses in this sequestration process, taking into ...

  • Enhanced liquid recovery by carbon dioxide sequestration in gas/condensate reservoirs

    CO2 sequestration in a depleted gas/condensate reservoir could be a viable option due to the economic benefits associated with the enhanced liquid recovery. According to previous laboratory investigations, CO2 may be superior to methane (CH4) or nitrogen (N2) ...

  • Anaerobic degradation of carbon capture reclaimer MEA waste

    The anaerobic biodegradation of reclaimer MEA (monoethanolamine) waste (MEAw) with easily degradable co-substrates was investigated in a laboratory-scale bioreactor at room temperature during a 160 d experimental run. The reactor that was constructed with three phases to facilitate attached biofilm and suspended biomass retention for degradation of the complex and challenging MEAw performed ...

  • Ecological assessment of developing carbon sequestration in Shenyang, China

    Carbon sequestration in urban ecosystems is becoming an international climate change initiative for sustainable development. Drawing upon field work undertaken in the author's native Shenyang, China, this research reports upon the natural process of carbon sequestration from the atmosphere into urban ecosystems. The risks associated within carbon sequestration in urban ecosystems are investigated ...
