Durability and fire hazard risk evaluation were conducted to determine the process feasibility on the unique phase separation solvent with low regeneration temperature (90 °C), consisting of amine, ether, and small amount of water. The results we obtained are as follows; I) The amine degradation rate of the phase separation solvent would be less than 1/10 of that of monoethanolamine (MEA), which was contributed by its high oxidative resistant nature and low regeneration temperature. II) The gas composition formed in the absorber was completely out of combustible range and almost no accumulations of explosive compounds such as peroxides were observed when in contact with 6 % oxygen containing gas (dry base). Therefore, we believe that the phase separation solvent is applicable to the treatment of exhaust gas from coal-fired thermal power plants.
