This innovative approach offers several benefits when compared to existing technologies, including a reduced physical and carbon footprint, elimination of potentially hazardous solvents, up to a 50% reduction in energy consumption, and the ease of transporting and securely disposing of CO2 in liquid form through Geo-sequestration methods.
Carbon capture through desublimation represents an exceptional alternative to complex separation methods. This approach primarily relies on the availability of a cold source, rendering it a particularly promising solution for deployment in LNG plants and vessels. Nevertheless, it is imperative to acknowledge that desublimators differ from the conventional heat exchangers, as their principal function revolves around material separation via a phase change. Consequently, this technology offers an appealing alternative to methods such as adsorption, absorption, or cyclonic separation.
