Delivered: Automatic CO2 capture pilot plant
This pilot plant can evaluate the sustainability of absorption/desorption technology for CO2 capture from a targeted unit specialized in industrial waste incineration. The purpose of this setup is to investigate chemical interactions between synthetic flue gas and solvents and their impacts on process performance. At the same time, we complete our prospection by laboratory experiments to study the influence of specific degradation products on process performance. In this pilot project, we choose to focus on gas absorption and desorption by creating an inlet condition of flue gases to study the performance of different solvents.
This pilot plant is designed in such a way that it can easily be mobilized at any location for pilot testing. It consists of a fully atomized panel for controlling the plant to operate it at the different conditions for evaluating different solvents and to record all the data. This system gives the flexibility to operate in batch vies process or continuous process for CO2 capturing from the flue gases in a single setup. It helps in analyzing the performance of different solvents by operating them on different conditions to obtain the desired performance. Data acquisition and control are made seamless with the use of HMI. The entire operation of the pilot plant is automated with PLC controls and data logging via USB. The plant can also be remotely operated by an Ethernet connection and Wi-Fi.
The user can switch on the plant, make the selection as per the needs, run the plant and acquire the data through the HMI on PC. The system is also useful in explaining to students about the absorption/decoration of CO2 from the waste gases of different industries and power plants.
