Preventing toxic by-products of amine-based CO2 capture

Challenge:

CO2 emissions into the atmosphere are a growing problem. Therefore, technologies are being developed to capture and store CO2. The most commonly used method is with amine-based technology. However, the use of amine-based technology can lead to unwanted emissions of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the environment. At the same time, the issue is relatively uncharted.

 

Solution:

The purpose of the videbro project is to prevent emissions of unwanted and environmentally harmful VOCs from CO2 capture systems and at the same time create a literature review that can form the basis for further development and technologies. The project will solve a significant problem for the amine-based technology that can contribute to a broad implementation of CO2 capture at point sources, which can help Denmark reach its goal of 70% reduction of greenhouse gases by 2023.

 

Impact:

The technology developed through the knowledge bridge project will help reduce the emission of harmful substances to the environment. In addition, it will pave the way for a faster dissemination and utilisation of CO2 capture technologies in Danish and international industry. This will contribute to a positive climate effect by reducing CO2 emissions from combustion processes.
