In practice, carbon capture processes in CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) consist of two main units: the carbon dioxide (CO ) capture plant and the CO compression unit. This study considered a hybrid capture system that combined both the capture and the compression units. In doing so, the conventional multi-stage CO compression unit was replaced with a low-temperature carbon capture separation and pressurising step. The advantages of replacing the compression unit are two-folds: firstly, the low-temperature separation unit can further purify the CO stream and secondly, it produces liquid CO that can be pumped to the supercritical state required for transportation and sequestration. In or..
