Pumps for Carbon Capture

Created with GIMP

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is expected to be an important tool to meet reduction targets on CO2 emissions. CCS by aid of scrubbers or the so-called Amine Process is the most mature end of pipe solution today but intensive research is going on to find cheaper and less energy-demanding processes. Process simulations are an important tool for researchers and process engineers as they can optimize and benchmark many different solutions against each other before the actual construction of the facilities.

In this article, the result from a process simulation of an amine process is disclosed together with various experiences aligning with selecting the most appropriate pumps in respect to their hydraulic performance, corrosion resistance, and mechanical sealing system for this application.
