Surface Chemistry of Carbon Capture: Climate Change Aspects provides comprehensive and up-to-date literature on carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology and delineates the surface chemistry of this process.

Mankind is dependent on energy from gas, oil, coal, atomic energy, and various other sources. In all fossil fuel combustion processes, carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced (ca. 25 Gt/year). In the past few decades, we have observed a constant increase in CO2 content in the air (currently ca.400 ppm(0.04 %). This book discusses the technology related to carbon (i.e. CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) from fossil fuel energy plants, which is considered an important means of CO2 control. It also covers the adsorption/absorption processes of CO2 on solids and similar procedures, to help address the growing climate change concerns.

Key Features:

  • Highlights the surface chemistry aspects of carbon capture technology
  • Contributes to attaining the 2-degree Celsius consensus of the 2015 Paris climate summit
  • Considers solid surfaces from a solid thermodynamic basis, using the surface energy theory
  • Connects surface chemistry to CO2 capture, as the future will rely on surface chemical processes
  • Describes the importance of carbon dioxide capture and sequestration in the future to enable utilization of fossil fuels without contributing to atmospheric greenhouse gas levels
