Abstract

This novel concept can be applied to several of the CO2 capture technologies (e.g., a Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP) and Advanced Amine Process (AAP)) in order to reduce energy demand. The CAP and AAP include an absorber unit, and a regenerator unit . Lean solution from the regenerator is returned to the absorber, necessitating some means of pressure reduction.
