Past capture research program
CO2CRC’s capture research program commenced in 2003 and focused on a number of themes:
- Developing materials and processes for CO2 capture from post-combustion and pre-combustion gas streams.
- Designing for optimal heat integration.
- Reducing the cost of capture.
In collaboration with five universities in Australia, a range of CO2 capture techniques were investigated such as:
- Gas separation and capture technologies for a wide range of carbon dioxide producing applications including post combustion, pre-combustion and oxyfuels, power and natural gas production, and for all fossil fuel energy sources such as black and brown coal, natural gas and biofuels.
- Gas absorption processes.
- Gas separation and gas absorption membranes.
- Solid adsorption products and processes.
- Cryogenic and hydrate gas separation processes.
- Other hybrid applications.
