Abstract

The owners of the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM DA) started a monoethanolamine (MEA) test campaign in June 2017. The main objective was to produce knowledge and information that can be used to reduce the cost as well as technical, environmental and financial risks of commercial scale deployment of post-combustion capture (PCC). The campaign covered experimental activities in the amine plant from the 12th of June 2017 until the 30th of July 2018. A wide range of operating conditions were applied, thus giving a unique opportunity to study the impacts on the solvent quality, degradation behavior, corrosion tendency and emissions to the atmosphere. The current work describes how solvent quality and low emissions to atmosphere can be maintained during longterm operation by appropriate solvent management.
