This book focuses on modelling issues and their implications for the correct design of reactive absorption-desorption systems.
In addition, it addresses the case of carbon dioxide (CO2) post-combustion capture in detail. The book proposes a new perspective
on these systems, and provides technological solutions with comparisons to previous treatments of the subject. The model that
is proposed is subsequently validated using experimental data. In addition, the book features graphs to guide readers with
immediate visualizations of the benefits of the methodology proposed. It shows a systematic procedure for the steady-state
model-based design of a CO2 post-combustion capture plant that employs reactive absorption-stripping, using monoethanolamine
as the solvent. It also discusses the minimization of energy consumption, both through the modification of the plant flowsheet
and the set-up of the operating parameters.
The book offers a unique source of information for researchers and practitioners
alike, as it also includes an economic analysis of the complete plant. Further, it will be of interest to all academics and
students whose work involves reactive absorption-stripping design and the modelling of reactive absorption-stripping systems.
