SO2 Effect on Oxidative Degradation of Monoethanolamine for Post Combustion CO2 Capture
3 Pages Posted: 4 Apr 2019 Last revised: 27 Oct 2020
Many studies have been carried out to understand the mechanism of solvents degradation. For MEA, different kinds of degradation have been identified: MEA oxidative degradation related to the presence of oxygen in flue gas, thermal degradation due to high temperature in the stripper and a third mechanism of degradation due to the presence of contaminant (NOx, SOx, etc) in the combustion flue gas. The goal of this study is to identify the impact of the presence of SO2 on MEA oxidative degradation.
