  2. 2. Calcium Oxide based Carbon Capture in District Energy Systems

    University essay from KTH/Kemiteknik

    Author : Mit Jayesh Vora; [2022]
    Keywords : BioCCS; BECCS; Post Combustion; Calcium looping CaL process; Techno-economic assessment; District heating;

    Abstract : Global carbon emissions are higher than ever before and in the last decade of 21st century, focus has shifted on reducing these emissions in various ways possible. Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) has been identified as one of the important ways to reduce carbon emissions and meet climate targets. READ MORE

  3. 3. Techno-Economic Assessment of a Post-Combustion CO2 Capture Unit in SCA Östrand Pulp Mill

    University essay from KTH/Energiprocesser

    Author : Abhishek Subramani; [2022]
    Keywords : Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage; Post-Combustion Capture; Monoethanol Amine; Chilled Ammonia; Techno-Economic Assessment;

    Abstract : The Paris Agreement has ambitious targets to limit the global warming below 1.5 °Cin the 21st century. This goal is reflected in the national climate targets, for example, Sweden aims to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045, and thereafter achieve negative emissions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparative techno-economic analysis of BECCS and biochar in Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Energy and Technology

    Author : Simon Martelius; [2022]
    Keywords : NETs; feasibility; cost-effectiveness; climate change-mitigation; CHP; carbon neutrality; bioenergy;

    Abstract : Greenhouse gas emissions from human activity need to decrease for the Paris agreement goal of 1.5° C of global warming to be reached, and while emission reduction efforts remain the most important tool for combating climate change, it is increasingly evident that negative emission technologies (NETs) will play a key role reaching the climate targets of the Paris agreement.

  5. 5. Carbon capture in biomass combustion plants using promoted potassium carbonate solutions : A cost and safety evaluation

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Institutionen för kemiteknik

    Author : Håkan Bergman; [2022]
    Keywords : BECCS; carbon dioxide; potassium carbonate; bioenergy carbon capture and storage; promoter; BECSS; Koldioxidinfångning;

    Abstract : Biomass combustion can be seen as CO2 neutral, thereby biomass combustion plants can have negative CO2 emissions if retrofitted with post combustion capture (PCC) technology using liquid absorbents. Monoethanolamine (MEA) has been used for carbon capture in coal combustion plants but are not suitable for use in biomass combustion plants due to corrosion and high solvent regeneration cost.
