Post-combustion: chemical absorption (biomass with CCUS)


Technology Description

At a biomass-fired power plant with post-combustion capture using chemical absorption, the CO2 is separated from the combustion flue gas by using a chemical solvent (e.g. amine-based). The CO2 is released at high temperature and the solvent regenerated for further operation.

Relevance for Net Zero

Technology can provide negative emissions needed to offset remaining positive emissions in other parts of the energy system in order to reach net zero.
