CO2 MITIGATION STUDIES IN PACKED ABSORPTION COLUMN USING IRON OXIDE NANOFLUID Scientific paper
Main Article Content
The challenging task in our ecosystem is to reduce acidic gas emissions to some extent. Many gases are emitted from the industries like H2S, CO, CO2, SO2, NO, and NO2 as exhaust gases. Among these gases, CO2, NO2, and SO2 are acidic, which results in adverse effects on humans, animals, and plants. The increase in the emission of CO2 gases from both anthropogenic and industrial sources resulted in CO2 mitigation studies. CO2 absorption studies were carried out using iron oxide nanofluid with the novel structured packed absorption column. Iron oxide nanoparticles were synthesized and characterized using XRD, SEM, and TEM analysis. Ammonia is used as an absorbent along with iron oxide nanofluid of three different concentrations (0.0001 w/v%, 0.001 w/v%, and 0.0015 w/v%). It was found that the iron oxide nanofluid of 0.0015 w/v% showed an improved % CO2 removal efficiency. This enhanced % CO2 removal efficiency was due to the increased interfacial area of the ameliorated contact between the liquid and gas phases. In addition, the magnetic field was introduced along with the packed column, which increased CO2 removal efficiency by 1.5%.
