Pipeline Transportation of Carbon Dioxide Containing Impurities
3 Anthropogenic CO2 Properties
Download citation file:
This chapter highlights and explores compositional quality scenarios of anthropogenic CO2 for the different capture technologies and pipeline transportation. Anthropogenic CO2 originates largely from power plants which employ the post-combustion, pre-combustion and oxyfuel capture technologies. The levels of impurities present are driven by the economic, environmental and safety considerations for both capture technology and pipeline transportation. While this chapter highlights both globally, Chapter 5 details pipeline related issues with respect to impact of impurities on pipeline design and specifications.
Whether the source is natural or anthropogenic, the CO2 stream will always contain impurities. It has been established that anthropogenic CO2...
