CO2 Capture from RFCC Flue Gas with 30w% MEA at Technology Centre Mongstad, Process Optimization and Performance Comparison

Aerosol based amine emission from post combustion carbon capture process is very challenging in terms of accurate online measurement, compliance to emission permit and operating cost due to high solvent makeup. At Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM), an advanced process configuration is developed and tested to control and reduce amine emissions in parallel to accurately measure MEA emissions by online FTIR. The advanced configuration consists of a Brownian diffusion filter upstream the absorber, RFCC water wash, special design and operation of online sampling system and a fractional cold rich amine bypass to the stripper. With the flue gas from the Residue fluidized catalytic cracker (RFCC), promising results are achieved by applying the advanced process configuration. MEA emissions are reduced to about 2 ppm and specific reboiler duty of 3.5 GJ/ton CO2 is demonstrated with a capture rate of about 90%.
