Performance criteria’s of an optimized amine solution

“Various challenges the amine–based chemical absorption, especially with the very reactive base solvent MEA (5 kmol/m3) have prompted the need to develop and optimize novel amine solvent combinations. The aim of this development is to achieve some capabilities but not limited to the following list;

High absorption rate and capacity

High cyclic loading and cyclic capacity

High desorption rate

High mass transfer

Low absorption heat

Reduce energy of solvent regeneration.

Amine stability

Amine volatility and emissions

Minimizing amine degradation and associated energy for reclaiming

Reduced capital and operating cost
