IEAGHG has identified the need to study the effects of impurities in CO2 streams on CO2 compression, pipeline and shipping transportation. This study has been performed by a consortium led by Newcastle University and including the University of Edinburgh to address this need. The report:
- Reviews the CO2 impurities that could be present from different CO2 capture technologies and develops twelve CO2 impurity scenario compositions for further analysis .
- Evaluates these impurity scenarios for CO¬2 physical and transport properties. The properties that are investigated are the dew point, bubble point, melting point, density, Joule-Thomson coefficients, speed of sound, viscosity and thermal conductivity. Comprehensive tables and figures are provided for all of the scenarios investigated and for binary combinations of CO2 with impurity .
- Evaluates the effects of the impurities on CO2 compression and liquefaction in terms of performance and energy requirements.
- Identifies the effects of the impurities on the operating conditions for both pipeline and ship based transportation.
- Evaluates the effect of the impurities on the selection of materials for pipeline and ship transportation.
