Abstract Information :

One of the prominent abatement methods utilised within carbon capture. When installing a carbon capture system and deciding on the solvent type to use, there will be a requirement to assess the likely emissions and environmental impact of the process, through pilot tests. There are established and approved methods of measuring amines, however the reaction compounds and expected low levels present a challenge for these techniques and there is limited information available on expected emission levels and impacts. In this talk we will look at current techniques, and their limitations, as well as looking at some of the techniques that have been tested in the absence of detailed standards for some of the reaction compounds processes to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the flue gas is to use amine solvents. These amines react with the CO2 to allow capture as a salt, but will inevitably result in the release of some of the amine solvents and other amine compounds formed within the process via reaction/degradation.
