Kinetic and Thermodynamic Analysis of Post-Combustion CO2 Capture Process: Parametric Modelling, Optimization and Solvents Screening

This project is a cooperation between the university and an industrial partner. The project is reflecting the most challenging concerns in the carbon capture processes at the industrial operations. The project seeks possible solutions for the improvement of solvent-based post combustion CO2 capture process. The process improvement qualifiers are the amount of the energy utilization, CO2 absorption, and the solvent selection, which have the greatest operational advantages along with the least environmental impact. This can be accomplished by following the proposed methodology and developing appropriate mathematical models for the kinetics, thermodynamics, physical, chemical, and transport phenomena involved in the process. The MITACS support will be used to hire a Postdoctoral Fellow (PDF) to endorse the endeavors envisioned in the joint industry project (JIP). The PDF will bear the theoretical attempts and practical efforts at the facilities provided by the partner and at Memorial University (MUN).
