June 07, 2018 RFC: An Advanced Co-Current Contactor for Process Intensification of CO2 Capture
A technical note on the co-current Regenerative Froth Contactor for CO2 capture highlights test results. Observations relating to SINTEF INSPiRE project precipitating solvent study and internal Westec Environmental Solutions work using monoethanolamine (MEA).
March 09, 2018 CS1801: Regenerative Froth Contactor - Revolutionizing Gas/Liquid Contacting
Profile of the Regenerative Froth Contactor Technology and why it matters:
- 5 times process intensification (ie 1/5 the size) of conventional absorbers;
- high solids tolerance - non-fouling even with precipitate formation
- broad range of applications including CO2 capture.
December 01, 2017 Tech Note TNP001: (preliminary) CO2 Capture Evaluation of the WES Co-current Absorber Using MEA (Bill Hargrove - Westech Environmental Solutions, LLC)
This preliminary technical note outlines the performance obtained using the Regenerative Froth Contactor in the Westech Environmental Solutions lab. Monoethanolamine was chosen as a baseline capture solvent because it is a non-proprietary solvent. Testing was performed at 22% MEA concentration.
