PN-III-CEI-BIM-PM – 3. Energy, environmnet and climate change

Project manager: Cristian DINCA
Partner: University Lorraine (France) – Prof. Eric FAVRE
Period: 2019-2020


In the context of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and in particular CO2 emissions generated by the energy industry but also by the industrial environment (cement, glass, steel, etc.), the current project aims to use the coupling between the contactor membrane and the chemical absorption process (hybrid mode). The objective of this project is to intensify the mass transfer between the gas phase and the liquid phase using hollow fiber membranes, the chemical solvent being regenerated in a regeneration column. For each type of chemical solvent (ammonia, or amine mixture) used the followings indicators such as: maximum absorption rate, volatilization, CO2 partial pressure at equilibrium, energy consumption for solvent regeneration, etc., will be determined. Also, for each type of solvent membrane (polypropylene, polytetrafluoroethylene, etc.) used will be determined experimentally and numerically (using programs such as Aspen Plus or ChemCAD) the CO2 capture efficiency. The purpose of the study is to integrate the hybrid module into the pilot fluidized bed combustion plant in order to limit solvent losses and reduce the energy penalty under real conditions imposed by the composition of the combustion gases and process parameters (pressure, temperature). The final result of the project will consist in the optimization of the process parameters of the hybrid module from the perspective of its integration in energy processes.
