This research project is mainly focused on the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion through a so called ‘capture and storage’-technique. This technique has shown promising results, climatologically and financially, in the reduction of greenhouse gases. The technology for capturing CO2 from power plant and other major sources is already largely available. Technologies for capturing CO2 can be divided into three main categories: post-combustion, pre-combustion generally referred to as Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle, and oxy-fuels in which a power plant's fuel is burned in oxygen rather than air. Storage of CO2 is feasible in natural underground reservoirs, such as depleted oil and gas reservoirs, deep saline reservoirs and unminable coal seams, which have sufficient capacity for many years’ emissions. Research is needed to improve efficiency and reduce costs, particularly of CO2 capture, and to deal with environmental impacts and the uncertainties of CO2 storage. There is considerable scope for new ideas to accelerate the development and introduction of capture and storage technology. This research project is a contribution to the need to improve the efficiency and cost reduction of the CO2 capture techniques. A new solid amine scrubber recently developed at the RuG showed already promising results during several laboratory experiments. In this work we will mainly analyze the chemical structure of this scrubber from a theoretical point of view and compare it with other already available chemicals. In particular we will analyze whether this structure can meet the basic processing requirements needed for the product development step.
