Carbon Capture, Sequestration, and Utilization

Carbon capture, sequestration, and utilization technology is being advanced by SwRI engineers and scientists. Helping those who are working on technologies that respond to climate change, SwRI offers clients scientific knowhow and process development expertise in the following areas:

  • COcapture pilot plant design/integration/operations
  • Capture technology selection and evaluation
  • Process and flue gas automated sampling and analyses
  • COseparation membrane technologies
  • Capture system simulation and energy consumption evaluation
  • Use of regenerated CO2 as a process feedstock
  • Site monitoring/control
  • Complete system analysis and process simulation
  • Process component integration
  • CO2 absorption-enhanced reforming process development

Recent areas of work include:

  • Vapor/liquid equilibrium testing (VLE data)
  • Greenhouse gas-to-fuel technology
  • Geological sequestration testing
  • Chemical absorption and physical separation systems
  • High temperature CO2 separation ceramic membrane development
  • Greenhouse gas monitoring
  • Alternative energy (fuel cells, hydrogen production, chemical batteries)
