Fog and Froth-Based Post-Combustion CO2 Capture in Fossil Fuel Power Plants

Grants and Contracts Details


To address the grand challenge identified in the Mission Innovation (September 2017), the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (UKy-CAER) is designing a high-performance solvent system using a unique concentrated solvent and process intensification to significantly reduce the capital cost associated with second generation CO2 capture technology from either coal or natural gas combustion. The solvent will possess three features (1) similar chemical performance to any second generation advanced solvent in the terms of reaction kinetics, cyclic capacity and heat of absorption; (2) unique physical properties that enable fog generation with droplets
