Carbon Capture takes an interdisciplinary approach with in-depth discussion based on fundamental concepts, ranging from the chemical physics associated with a given material that binds CO2, to the unit operations of the process, closely coupled by mass transfer. The core chapters pay significant attention to the pedagogy associated with absorption, adsorption, and membrane separation processes for CO2 capture and include many worked examples and end-of-chapter problems. This book provides the reader with the skillset needed to recognize the limitations of traditional gas separation technologies in the context of CO2 capture, and how they may be advanced to meet the scale challenge required to substantially decrease CO2 emissions.
From Robert Socolow, Princeton University:
This comprehensive textbook on carbon dioxide capture, the first one ever, has arrived at a pivotal moment. Removing carbon dioxide from gas mixtures in new and cheaper ways is the key to an energy system responsive to the threat of climate change yet respectful of the merits of coal and natural gas. Wilcox's book will usher a new generation of students into this critical field.
