Process simulation and technical evaluation of solid adsorbents for carbon capture


Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. In addition to solvent based carbon capture, solid adsorbents for carbon capture have attracted researchers' interest.

This project aims to evaluate the technical and economic performance of carbon capture process using solid adsorbents based on process simulation (such as Aspen Adsorption). We hope to compare this technology with solvent based carbon capture systematically so that we can provide evidence for policy-makers.
