About this book

This book approaches the energy science sub-field carbon capture with an interdisciplinary discussion based upon fundamental chemical concepts ranging from thermodynamics, combustion, kinetics, mass transfer, material properties, and the relationship between the chemistry and process of carbon capture technologies. Energy science itself is a broad field that spans many disciplines--policy, mathematics, physical chemistry, chemical engineering, geology, materials science and mineralogy--and the author has selected the material, as well as end-of-chapter problems and policy discussions, that provide the necessary tools to interested students.


- Power Systems (PCC, IGCC, NGCC, Oxycombustion)
- Capture Systems (Postcombustion, precombustion, direct air capture)
- CO2 Chemistry (carbonate vs. carbomate); thermodynamics; kinetics
- Mass Transfer (gas and liquid diffusion)
- Material Science
- Solvent properties; packing materials (absorption)
- Sorbent properties (MOFs, Resins, activated carbon; adsorption)
- Process Design (absorption towers; adsorption systems
- Packed-bed vs fluidized-bed reactors)
- Catalytic membranes
- Primarily for postcombustion
- Precombustion capture methods
- Membranes (polymer and dense); zeolites
