CO2 separation with ionic liquids

Capture CO2 from flue gases to mitigate CO2 emissions from fossil-fuelled power plants
Remove CO2 from synthesis gas to enhance yields/get products when producing transportation biofuels from biomass via gasification
Available commercial technologies for CO2 capture/removal is expensive and energy-intensive

•This project aims to investigate a new technology using ionic liquids for CO2 capture/removal by performing theoretical investigations on solubility of gases in ionic liquids

•The long term goal is tounderstand, simulate and evaluate post- and pre-combustion CO2 capture processes for fossil-fuelled power plants and CO2 removal from synthesis gas in methanol, hydrogen and synthetic hydrocarbon productions from biomass via gasification

•Funding: Swedish Research Council

•Duration:2010-2012
