||PCT/AU2014/000958||REID SYSTEMS (AUSTRALIA) TPY LTD||REID, Terrence|
A method and apparatus for removing carbon dioxide
from a flue gas is disclosed. The method comprises contacting the flue gas with an ammoniated solution to produce an ammonium bicarbonate solution and contacting the ammonium bicarbonate solution with a sulphate source to produce a carbonate compound and an ammonium sulphate solution. The apparatus comprises a gas-liquid absorption zone configured for contacting the flue gas with an ammoniated solution to produce an ammonium bicarbonate solution; the gas-liquid absorption zone having respective inlets to receive the flue gas and the ammoniated solution in the gas-liquid absorption zone, and an outlet for egress of the ammonium bicarbonate solution. The apparatus also includes a reactor configured for contacting the ammonium bicarbonate solution with a sulphate source to produce a carbonate compound and an ammonium sulphate solution; the reactor having respective inlets to receive the ammonium bicarbonate solution and the sulphate source in the reactor, and an outlet for egress of the carbonate compound and ammonium sulphate solution. The method and apparatus can be adapted for producing fertilizer from flue gas by utilizing the ammonium sulphate solution in a process to produce a fertilizer product.

absorbing agent at the end of the absorption step is below the LCST of the CO2
-absorbing agent at the end of the absorption step, resulting in absorption of CO2
; (b) increasing the temperature of the CO2
-absorbing agent, wherein the temperature at the end of the desorption step is above the LCST of the CO2
-absorbing agent at the end of the desorption step, resulting in the desorption of CO2

||PCT/EP2014/071800||NILU - STIFTELSEN NORSK INSTITUTT FOR LUFTFORSKNING||SCHMIDBAUER, Norbert|
A method of treatment of exhaust gases for carbon dioxide capture
comprises contacting a combustion gas mixture including carbon dioxide
with a solution of sodium bicarbonate and sodium carbonate in water, such that carbon dioxide
reacts with hydroxide ions in the solution to form bicarbonate ions; continuing the contacting until sodium bicarbonate precipitates out of the solution as a solid; removing the solid sodium bicarbonate; and (v) heating the sodium bicarbonate to form sodium carbonate, water and carbon dioxide
; wherein during steps (i) to (iv) the sodium bicarbonate concentration in the solution is maintained at 90% or more of saturation levels. Advantageously, the process can be made into a continuous recycling loop with the sodium bicarbonate being broken down by heat into sodium carbonate, water and carbon dioxide
, and the sodium carbonate being recycled into the solution. The carbon dioxide
may be compressed and stored.
