Environmentally beneficial, yet costly and impractical. It’s how some industries (and governments) in recent years have viewed the concept of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture from industrial emitters.
The use of high temperature steam for solvent regeneration as part of the amine (removal) processes for CO2 capture can cost upwards of $100 per metric ton, making it sometimes impractical for large-scale applications to mitigate carbon emissions.
Additionally, amine solvents are highly toxic and create environmental issues that counter the benefits of reducing CO2 emissions.
