ISBN-13: 9781845695330

The fossil-fuel energy zone and energy-intensive industries are significant manufacturers of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, contributing to emerging worldwide CO2 degrees which have been associated with weather switch. CO2 catch and garage (CCS) know-how is consequently being constructed for program to energy vegetation and in CO2-intensive industries to minimize the carbon footprint of those actions, as a way to mitigate the possibly destructive results of weather switch. CO2 trap strategies variety from publish- and pre-combustion separation to complicated combustion-based suggestions, that are acceptable to either new-build energy plant or as a retrofit to latest plant, and will even be followed in different industries. CO2 garage suggestions variety from geological sequestration in deep saline aquifers and utilisation of CO2 for more suitable oil and fuel restoration, to mineral carbonation and biofixation. advancements and concepts during this box are geared toward expanding the effectiveness and reducing the price of trap, and at verifying the protection and efficacy of storage/sequestration. advancements and innovation in carbon dioxide (CO2) catch and garage expertise, Volumes 1 and a pair of, offer a finished reference at the state-of-the-art of analysis, improvement and demonstration of CCS expertise within the strength quarter and in undefined. quantity 1 at the beginning studies the economics, legislation and making plans of CCS for energy vegetation and undefined, and is going directly to discover advancements and innovation in put up- and pre-combustion and complicated combustion techniques and applied sciences for CO2 seize in strength vegetation. This insurance is prolonged with sections on CO2 compression, delivery and injection and commercial purposes of CCS know-how, together with within the cement, concrete, iron and metal industries. With its extraordinary overseas group of participants, advancements and innovation in carbon dioxide (CO2) seize and garage know-how, Volumes 1 and a couple of, might be a regular reference for pro and supervisor within the strength area and comparable industries, in addition to to teachers and researchers during this vital box.

Example text

Under oxyfuel combustion conditions, fuel is burnt in pure oxygen rather than air, resulting in more complete combustion and producing a flue gas constituting approximately 90 % CO2 for easier separation (oxyfuel © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2010 16 Developments and innovation in CCS technology combustion) (Vol. 1, Chapter 9, Mathieu). Advanced oxygen separation and generation systems (Vol. 1, Chapter 10, Kluiters, van den Brink and Haije), and chemical looping combustion systems (Vol. 1, Chapter 11, Anthony) are also being developed as promising alternatives to the more common post- and pre-combustion capture processes.

In general, the cost of electricity is higher with CO2 capture, but carbon emissions are reduced by over 80 %. , through a carbon tax). Plants with CCS are preferred for carbon taxes in the range of $40–70/tCO 2.

2, Chapter 11, Golomb and Pennell) but is associated with many more risks to marine ecosystems (including risks of CO2 leakage from subsea reservoirs) that have not yet been adequately researched (Vol. 2, Chapter 13, Blackford, Widdicombe, Lowe and Chen). 4 Advanced concepts for carbon dioxide (CO2) storage and utilisation Alternative, less conventional, routes for CO2 storage and utilisation are receiving increased attention, including CO2 utilisation by industry, mineralisation/mineral carbonation, biofixation of CO2 by microorganisms and photocatalytic reduction of CO2.
