Carbon Dioxide Adsorption Using Activated Carbon via Chemical Vapor Deposition Process
Keywords:Carbon molecular sieve, chemical vapor deposition, adsorption, carbon dioxide.
This research aims to study the physical-chemical characteristics and carbon dioxide adsorption using commercial activated carbon (GAC) by comparing with commercial activated carbon. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of carbon molecular sieve prepared from activated carbon (CMSGAC) was prepared using acetylene at various conditions, such as temperature, time and acetylene flow rate. The results indicated that CMSGAC had high adsorption capacity and high selectivity for the adsorption ratio between carbon dioxide and methane. The experiments were carried out by using the samples of GAC, CMSGAC, and commercial carbon molecular sieve (CMSCOM) for adsorption of mixed gas of 30% CO2, 20% N2, and 50% CH4, respectively. The results showed that the adsorption efficiency at 50% of inlet carbon dioxide concentration of GAC, CMSGAC, and CMSCOM was at 85, 114, and 140 min, respectively. The purity of methane was 81.53, 93.16, and 98.26%, respectively. The selectivity for the adsorption ratio between carbon dioxide and methane was 1.32, 16.52, and 24.89, respectively. The cycle time of the samples was 3, 7, and 8 cycles, respectively. Finally, the maximum adsorption capacity of the samples was 1.74, 3.26, and 4.06 mole CO2/kg absorbent, respectively.
