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 experiencing 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, this chapter presents 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. Solvent systems considered include MDEA, MDEA + Piperazine, MEA, DGA, Selexol, and Rectisol.
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 are freely available for noncommercial use, and for instructional purposes.
The simulation files can be downloaded from the simulation files database,
