Impact of Transient Operation on Amine Emissions at the Niederaussem Capture Plant
9 Pages Posted: 17 Apr 2019
Understanding capture plant emissions is of paramount importance for the implementation of CCS at large scale. In addition to the economic benefit of minimising solvent losses, solvent emissions are a concern for the public and regulators. Providing solutions to this issue avoids unnecessary investments in mitigation technologies and helps the public perception of amine capture technology. This work contributes to the understanding of this topic and presents some results of an experimental parametric study based on single step perturbations of the most relevant plant variables that have an impact on solvent emissions. The experiments were executed at the pilot plant facilities at Niederaussem between the months of April and May in 2018 within the framework of the ALIGN-CCUS project. The collected data provides baseline emissions as well as the time responses from the process variables to be able to identify the dynamic response of amine abatement process systems. The data will be used to develop time-dependent emission models.
