Effect of a gas–gas-heater on H2SO4 aerosol formation: Implications for mist formation in amine based carbon capture

Authors: Jan Mertens, R. Bruns, B. Schallert, N. Faniel, P. Khakharia, W. Albrecht, E. Goetheer, J. Blondeau, K. Schaber

This study presents the potential of a gas–gas-heater (GGH) to minimise amine emissions.

  • A GGH removes up to 70% of sulphuric acid from the flue gas.
  • A GGH prevents the homogenous nucleation of sulphuric acid into aerosols.
  • Information will serve designing future aerosol emission countermeasures.
