New Model Configuration for Post Combustion Carbon Capture

Udara S. P. R. Arachchige, Dinesh Kawan, and Morten C. Melaaen

Abstract—This paper discusses about possible configurations to improve the process with reduction of re-boiler energy demand. The simulations are performed in the Aspen Plus process simulation tool to check the required re-boiler duty. In the new model configuration, the rich solvent to the stripper is split using splitter block and supplied to the stripper section. The re-boiler duty for 85%, 90% and 95% removal efficiency cases are calculated for new model configuration and it is 3255, 3360 and 3614 kJ/kg CO2 respectively. This is around 10% reduction of re-boiler duty compare to the conventional process.

Index Terms—Carbon capture, model configuration, post combustion, re-boiler duty.
