Polyketones, modified with an amine, could be attractive for CO2 absorption. The absorption of CO2 is very important, since the Greenhouse effect dramatically changes the environment. Especially in the industry, for example in power plants, the discharge of CO2 is much too high. Absorption systems which reduce the discharge of CO2 are widely implemented and are proofed very useful. The current absorption systems are based on aqueous amines, solvents such as monoethanolamine (MEA) and methyldiethanolemine (MDEA). Here, it was found that a modified polyketone, described in a former patent of Shell, could absorb the CO2. The modified polyketone could be attractive for the market, because the raw material cost of the polyketone is cheaper than the current solvents. Calculations were made to see what the maximum process costs of making the modified polyketone are when total costs must be the same as when MEA and MDEA are used.
