Updating content from the author’s 2001 book Coal Desulfurization, this new title focuses on CO2 sequestration and utilization. It includes information on the theory and practical approaches to CO2 capture and recent advances in the use of sequestered CO2.
Capture approaches cover post-combustion scrubber options applicable to coal and other fuels and pre-combustion capture options specific to coal. Information on recent practical implementations at full scale power facilities around the world is included. The book’s coverage of sequestration includes underground, oceanic, biological, and alternative long-term CO2 storage methods. It also includes recent advances in utilizing CO2 for enhanced oil recovery, advances in storage with depleted oil and gas reservoirs and deep saline aquifers, and additional topics. The book also focuses on physical and chemical applications of captured CO2 of varying purities. Topics include specific applications of pure CO2 and covers chemical conversion of CO2 to useful compounds such as methanol, formaldehyde, and oxalic acid.
Aimed at researchers and industry professionals in chemical, environmental, and energy engineering, this book provides insight and inspiration into making capturing CO2 not merely a response to regulatory pressure and climate change, but an inherently profitable and valuable venture.
