One of grand challenges the world is facing is how to combat with climate change caused by accumulation of various emissions. Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is viewed as an effective way to reduce CO2 emissions significantly. CO2 coming from power generation and industrial manufacturing processes are the major sources. This project will deal with carbon capture using solid adsorbents for power plant or industrial processes. Different processes will be simulated in Aspen Adsorption®. These models will be validated with experimental data (from our academic collaborators). Process analysis will be followed to analyse different characteristics of different processes. Process economic analysis will be carried out using Aspen tools. It will then be optimised in order to reduce the overall cost for carbon capture.
