The precedent to this article, published in the April 2011 issue of Hydrocarbon Processing, discussed the chemical feasibility and process engineering design to absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from flue gas emissions at near-atmospheric pressure.1 The process investment and operating costs cannot be offset by the sole use or sale of the reclaimed CO2, and the regenerative absorption plant would only be sustained by ecology-oriented legislation or similar incentives. CO2 emissions forecast and potential markets To fix a reference for the year 2015, worldwide annual emissions from fossil-fuel-fed power plants alone are estimated to exceed 33 billion metric tons of CO2.2 The gas is diluted in t
