Advanced CO2 Capture Technologies: Absorption, Adsorption, and Membrane Separation Methods available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Springer International Publishing
This book summarises the advanced CO2 capture technologies that can be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, especially those from large-scale sources, such as power-generation and steel-making plants. Focusing on the fundamental chemistry and chemical processes, as well as advanced technologies, including absorption and adsorption, it also discusses other aspects of the major CO2 capture methods:
- membrane separation;
- the basic chemistry and process for CO2 capture;
- the development of materials and processes; and
- practical applications, based on the authors’ R&D experience.
This book serves as a valuable reference resource for researchers, teachers and students interested in CO2 problems, providing essential information on how to capture CO2 from various types of gases efficiently. It is also of interest to practitioners and academics, as it discusses the performance of the latest technologies applied in large-scale emission sources.
