  9. 9. Mulgrave Capture Project Pre-Combustion Capture Demonstration <ul><li>Captured 1 tonne of CO 2 per day from synthesis gas (hydrogen) </li></ul><ul><li>Solvent used was potassium carbonate </li></ul><ul><li>Design and built in 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Commissioned and operated on a campaign basis from 2008 until 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Operational data used in benchmarking process simulations (ASPEN Plus TM ) used in the development of a lower cost and more energy efficient carbonate process </li></ul>K 2 CO 3 + CO 2 + H 2 O ↔ 2KHCO 3
  10. 10. H3 Capture Project Post-Combustion Capture Demonstration <ul><li>Captured up to 25 tonne of CO 2 per day from flue gas (nitrogen) </li></ul><ul><li>Solvents used included Puratreat TM and potassium carbonate </li></ul><ul><li>Design and built in 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Commissioned and operated from 2008 until 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Operational data used in benchmarking process simulations (ASPEN Plus TM ) used in the development of a lower cost and more energy efficient carbonate process </li></ul>
