Atlantic Council: Carbon capture in Germany: Long-overdue momentum is building

"It has been close to two years since German Chancellor Angela Merkel put carbon capture, removal, and storage back on the German policy agenda. However, for quite a while there was virtually no movement, even as Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Germany’s own industrial giants moved ahead with funding and projects. The lack of progress was jarring, as the support for carbon capture technologies from the scientific community grew rapidly. Fortunately, over the past few months momentum has slowly built."

Wang, Yushan; et al. (2021): Carbon Dioxide Capture by Non-aqueous Blend in Rotating Packed Bed Reactor: Absorption and Desorption Investigation

Wang, Yushan; Dong, Yuning; Zhang, Liangliang; Chu, Guangwen; Zou, Haikui; Sun, Baochang; Zeng, Xiaofei (2021): Carbon Dioxide Capture by Non-aqueous Blend in Rotating Packed Bed Reactor: Absorption and Desorption Investigation. In Separation and Purification Technology, p. 118714. DOI: 10.1016/j.seppur.2021.118714.

"In this work, 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP), 2-(2-aminoethylamino)ethanol (AEEA), N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) tri-solvent blend is used as a novel non-aqueous absorbent for CO2 capture process in rotating packed bed (RPB) reactor, which is employed to intensify the mass transfer in both absorption and desorption process."
