MACC Researchers release 20 instructional CO2 capture simulations

MACC Researchers have released 20 new example simulations for solvent-based CO2 and H2S capture processes in common commercial software packages such as Aspen Plus, Aspen HYSYS, Pro/II, and ProMax.

Solvent-based process for capturing CO2 from major energy conversion processes such as power plants and synthetic fuels processes have been in use for decades and are now experencing even greater interest due to their potential use in mitigating climate change. However, simulating these processes in major commercial software packages is notoriously difficult, even for expert users of the software. To address this, MACC researchers have created tutorials with 20 example simulations showing how to successfully simulate solvent-based capture processes using both chemical and physical solvents in four major commercial software packages. The examples cover a wide range of solvents in numerous real process such as traditional combustion power plants, advanced gasification-based power plants, and synthetic fuels processes.

The simulations accompany the textbook chapter "Process and Simulations for Solvent-based CO2 Capture and Syngas Cleanup" by Thomas A. Adams II, Yaser Khojestah Salkuyeh, and Jake Nease, appearing in the book Reactor and Process Design in Sustainable Energy Technology, ed: Fan Shi. The files freely available for noncommercial use, for instructional purposes.

The files can be downloaded in our software section
