Absorption-Based Post-Combustion Capture of Carbon Dioxideprovides a comprehensive and authoritative review of the use of absorbents for post-combustion capture of carbon dioxide. As fossil fuel-based power generation technologies are likely to remain key in the future, at least in the short- and medium-term, carbon capture and storage will be a critical greenhouse gas reduction technique.

Post-combustion capture involves the removal of carbon dioxide from flue gases after fuel combustion, meaning that carbon dioxide can then be compressed and cooled to form a safely transportable liquid that can be stored underground.

  • Provides researchers in academia and industry with an authoritative overview of the amine-based methods for carbon dioxide capture from flue gases and related processes
  • Editors and contributors are well known experts in the field
  • Presents the first book on this specific topic
With a globally recognised reputation for science excellence in carbon capture technology, Dr Paul Feron leads CSIRO's post-combustion CO2 capture research program, developing new cost-effective, environmentally-benign technologies to reduce atmospheric emissions from coal-fired power. As one of the pioneers of carbon capture research ...
