Thanks to our member Endress+Hauser’s Raman analyzer solution, the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) was able to share their unique and practical input for CO2 capture plant understanding gained through in-depth process insight by in-line monitoring of CO2 solvent.

Chemical absorption based on amine solvents is considered to be the most mature technology and commercially feasible method for carbon capture. USN demonstrates an implementation of a unique, fast, and robust solution for in-line process monitoring and complete speciation of a CO2 capture solvent, including CO2 loading and amine strength. It uses a Raman Rxn2 analyzer, powered by Kaiser Raman technology, in combination with multivariate regression models.

The results:
🟢 In-line monitoring of CO2 capture solvent quality
🟢 Data-based decisions for process control and optimisation
🟢 Reduction of total costs of ownership and safety risks
