Post-combustion capture

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Post-combustion capture refers to the removal of CO2 from power station flue gas prior to its compression, transportation and storage in suitable geological formations, as part of carbon capture and storage. A number of different techniques are applicable, almost all of which are adaptations of acid gas removal processes used in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Many of these techniques existed before World War II and, consequently, post combustion capture is the most developed of the various carbon-capture methodologies.
