Abstract

Cryogenic capture of carbon dioxide from flue gas streams is one potential pathway to reduce the CO2 emissions from power plants and industrial sources. In this paper, a minimum energy analysis of idealized cryogenic carbon capture processes is performed. Parametric studies on this idealized process are quantified to study the effect of minimum capture temperature and simulated heat exchange approach temperatures. The theoretical and practical difficulties in approaching this ideal process are described and discussed. Finally, the Sustainable Energy Solutions External Cooling Loop Cryogenic Carbon Captureā„¢ process is evaluated and compared to the idealized carbon-capture process.
