Temperature Dependence of Heat Integration Possibilities of an MEA Scrubber Plant at a Refinery
Paper in proceeding, 2013

A study has been conducted in order to investigate how the specific heat requirements in the stripper reboiler of a MEA capture plant changes with changing temperature. It was found that the increase in heat demand is dramatic when lowering the temperature, approximately 40% when the temperature changes from 120 to 90° C. Heat integration with a refinery was also studied, and showed that even if the heat demand was larger for the lower temperature the heat integration possibilities were also larger for the base case.
