CO Utilization Technology

Process and equipment design to solve problem associated with gas emissions

CO utilization for commercial purposes such as NaHCO production would be more beneficial to promote the deployment of CO capture technologies. Our optimized design of the reaction column is able to generate NaHCO from CO without any fouling problem.

Benit M offers the design package for CO utilization

  • Valuable product of CO utilization

  • Special tower internal design

  • No fouling

Carbonation Column

The presence of CO in our daily life cannot be neglected. CO itself has been well-known as the versatile material for generating various products such as dry ice, supercritical fluid solvent, methanol, urea, and etc. However, as the CO level in atmosphere is continuing to rise, more significant efforts must be made to decrease the CO level cost-effectively.

In particular to remove the CO from industrial flue gas, CO mineralization process demonstrated greater CO reduction impact compared to other CO utilization technologies. As one of the CO mineralization process technology, CO from flue gas can be utilized directly to produce NaHCO.

Carbonation Column

NaHCO (sodium bicarbonate), known as baking soda has numerous applications such as food, neutralization of acids, deodorizers, pest control, medical uses, cosmetics, or cleaning agents. NaHCO is produced by reacting CO with NaOH in the carbonation column. The carbonation column acts as the CO capture and NaHCO production reactor by following the reactions below.

  • NaOH + CONaCO + HO

  • NaCO + CO + HO NaHCO

However, fouling is a big headache during the production of NaHCO in the carbonation column, it commonly occurs due to the solid particle formation during the reaction. To overcome this issue, Benit M delivers process technology including special tower internal design to minimize the fouling tendency. The continuous and longer operation of the carbonation column is the key benefit of Benit M’s technology.

This CO utilization technology can be used by implementing it to the existing fossil fuel power plants. The significant advantage of this technology is to recycle CO by converting it to NaHCO to remove SOx from flue gas in power plants.

Besides, we are looking forward to offering other CO utilization scenarios which technically and economically feasible to be implemented on industrial plants.
