Abstract

CO2 emissions from industrial processes and their adverse implications on the climate is of major concern. Carbon capture and storage (CCS), especially using chemical-absorption-based processes, has been regarded as one of the most realistic pathways to curtail global warming and climate change. However, the energy-intensive nature of CO2 capture and therefore its expensive cost of operation has been regarded as the main barrier halting its widespread implementation among the portfolio of low-carbon energy technologies currently available. Recently, catalytic solvent regeneration has drawn significant attention as a new class of technology for energy-efficient CO2 capture with great potentia..
