Novel gas-liquid contactor concepts for PCC capital and operating cost reduction

25th August 2014

Topic(s): Economics, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

ANLEC R&D funded this CSIRO technical report that describes the development of a novel gas-liquid contactor aimed at reducing the capital and operating costs of Post Combustion Capture (PCC) commercial scale plants.

This project developed an innovative contactor which aimed to improve the economics of post combustion capture (PCC). The contactor design reduces the size of the column and eliminated the column packing, which enables an overall capital cost reduction of 30% and a power consumption reduction of 25%. Process optimisation in PCC deployment at scale will validate performance.  However the concept has demonstrated excellent potential for cost savings and can be applicable to many existing technologies and processes.
