Amine solvents are one of the most accepted technologies used worldwide for capturing CO2. Selecting the appropriate solvent depends on many factors including the chemical composition of the gases containing CO2, the availability of the amines in a specific region, and cost.
Digital twins can be applied to carbon capturing systems. This paper discusses the analysis of carbon capturing technologies, specifically CO2 capturing from flue gases using different amine solvent formulations. Selecting the right and optimum solvent will benefit the final set up of a digital twin.
This paper presents case study results from a typical CO2 capturing system using three different amine solvents:
- MEA (30 wt%)
- MDEA+Piperazine (33wt% MDEA + 7wt% Piperazine)
- MDEA+Sulfolane (20 wt% MDEA + 30wt% Sulfolane)

In the past, when oil prices were higher, upstream producers were very focused on managing their assets for maximum production volume. However, in the current and forecast business environment, there is a much greater need to manage for value. Maximum value is not always maximum flow; this can sometimes lead to value destruction. So what does managing for value mean for an upstream producer?Read full article
