Capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from major industries such as coal and gas power plants is among several options to control atmospheric carbon. Among the current CO2 capture approaches, chemical absorption with an aqueous amine solvent is currently the most technically advanced option due to its high absorption efficiency and relatively simple operation and technological maturity. When using aqueous amines for CO2 capture, unwanted side effects such as amine emission and formation of degradation products, including carcinogenic nitrosamines, are major economic and environmental concern. Lab, bench and pilot-scale studies can be used to better understand and prevent amine degradation and unintended secondary environmental impacts in operating carbon capture units.
