Abstract [en]

In order to mitigate climate change, there is a desperate need to reduce CO2 emissions from different sources. CO2 capture and sequestration will play an important role in these reductions. This report is focused on the capture of CO2 from flue gas emitted by a coal fired power plant, which is also described in this report. From the available technologies, post combustion capture with chemical absorption is chosen. It is already been shown by previous work that it is possible to capture CO2 by this method; this report goes a step ahead to simulate this process. Various methods available are described briefly along with the justification why 30% (wt) MEA is used as solvent for this kind of process. A first approach is made towards the simulation of the process using Aspen Plus 2006. The mass balance and the energy required for the process have been calculated. For simulation the help was taken from Aspen Plus 2006 documentation, also previous work assisted in performing it. The results obtained can be used as the base for optimizing the simulation.
