MIT Creates ‘Plug-and-Play’ CO2 Scrubber for Existing Power Plants

MIT Creates ‘Plug-and-Play’ CO2 Scrubber for Existing Power Plants

The system is a variation on a well-studied technology that uses chemical compounds called amines, which bind with CO2 in the plant’s emission stream and then release the gas when heated in a separate chamber. But the conventional process requires that almost half of the power plant’s low-pressure steam be diverted to provide the heat needed to force the amines to release the gas. That massive diversion would require such extensive changes to existing power plants that it is not considered economically feasible as a retrofit.
