Abstract:

Direct air capture is now considered an essential part of the portfolio of technologies that can enable us to limit global warming to acceptable levels. Apart from geological storage of the product CO2, it can also be used for the manufacturing of carbon neutral chemicals. CO2-capture from air is challenging because the low CO2 concentration requires huge amounts of air to be moved through the contactors and the thermal release of CO2 from the capture agents will require significant amounts of energy.

Here we provide a technical development roadmap by which liquid-absorbent based CO2-capture processes, the leading technology in CO2-capture, can be used for air capture. This is advantageous as one can build upon the existing and standard design and engineering practices, which will facilitate development and deployment. The technical roadmap is based on the following staged approach:

1.         Selection and evaluation of suitable liquid absorbents

2.         Evaluation of available gas/liquid contactors

3.         Optimisation of overall process design

This approach reveals that CO2-capture costs below $100/t CO2 are achievable.

The outcome of the technical roadmap is used for an estimate of costs to produce methane from CO2 and H2, which results in a renewable fuel that could be exported using the existing infrastructure that can compete with export of liquid hydrogen

Biography:

Dr Paul Feron is a science leader in CSIRO Energy in Australia. He has been leading CSIRO's post-combustion capture (PCC) research since June 2007 and is currently Group Leader Sustainable Carbon Technologies. Dr Feron is a member of the Australian mirror committee for ISO TC265, which is developing standards for CO2 capture and storage (CCS). He also is a member of the IEAGHG Executive Committee representing the Australian consortium. Previously Dr Feron worked for the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research TNO. He has contributed extensively to the development and conduct of large multi-party, multinational CCS R&D programs in Europe, Australia and China and was a lead author for the IPCC Special Report on CCS. He co-authored more than 150 publications, is co-inventor on 16 patent applications and most recently edited the first monograph on post-combustion CO2 capture (Absorption-Based Post-Combustion Capture of Carbon Dioxide – Woodhead Publishing). His current interests are in the realisation of concepts for added value, zero additional energy requirement CO2-capture and Direct Air Capture.
