Application of adsorption techniques for sour and greenhouse gas treatment
Safdar Hossain SK, Mohammed Mozahar Hossain
Sour (SO2, NOX & H2S) and greenhouse gases (CO2) are present in various proportions in most of the gaseous effluents from industrial facilities and automobiles. Recently, the rise in their concentration in the atmosphere has begun to show a detrimental effect on humans and other components of the ecosystems. While new, more efficient processes have now been designed with more stringent environmental regulations, but with the prevalent use of current polluting sources, warrants the need for devising efficient abatement and separation techniques for the harmful gases from flue gases, and their subsequent storage or destruction. Capture of harmful gases using solid adsorbent is a commercially promising method for the treatment of the flue gas from conventional power plants. In this chapter, we present an up to date account of the various types of conventional and emerging solid adsorbents for the capture of sour and greenhouse gases from flue gas. Major types of adsorption equipment used in the industry for the gas treatment are briefly discussed.
