Chemical Absorption - Definition, glossary, details

Chemical absorption is an amine based process that is used commercially to remove acid gas impurities from process gas streams.  This is the most commonly used technology today for low concentration CO2 capture. Chemical absorption is the most suitable method for separation of CO2 from the flue gas stream. The separation of CO2 using chemical absorption is a two step process  Absorbing carbon dioxide from the flue gas stream using a solvent   Separating the CO2 from the solvents by heating it at a certain temperature
