Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Capture
AdvanSorb® Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Capture
As the world seeks better industrial & energy solutions that are cleaner, more innovative, and more profitable, new markets for technology have emerged. CO2 capture is one of these technologies. The ability to capture CO2 from new and existing sources of flue gas, where CO2 is not emitted, and instead sequestered, or used in existing or new applications, is a game-changing way to reduce global CO2 emissions globally.
ARI’s patented moving bed temperature swing adsorption (MBTSA) technology represents a breakthrough in its simplicity and economics. ARI’s solution allows for a significant reduction in parasitic power usage (relative to PSA alternatives) by using the waste heat contained by the flue gas to drive the separation.
AdvanSorb®-CO2 Capture System Features, Benefits, & Capabilities
- Elegantly simple process and design provides for effective, efficient, and easy operation
- End-of-pipe solution means minimal disruption to existing plants when retrofitting
- Modular design allows for inexpensive construction, easy maintenance, flexible operation, and expandable capacity
- Captures and removes Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOX), mercury, and other dilute, toxic, contaminants
- Simplified system design eliminates the need for extra equipment, reduces sludge, and helps ensure compliance with state and federal regulations
- The overall capture cost of about $10 to $15/ton of CO2 makes for an economical investment relative to other CO2 capture technologies
- Purification of the captured CO2 and compression (to ~2,000 psi) for pipeline transport and sequestration adds another $10 to $20 cost per ton of CO2
