Planet earth is warming up, and anthropogenic emission of CO2 is acknowledged as a principal contributing factor. Among many sources, emissions from coal-fired power plants are the dominant emission points. As a means of tackling this problem, this thesis seeks to establish the energy-efficiency of using unpromoted and H3BO3 promoted K2CO3 as chemical absorbents for capturing CO2 in a post-combustion capture technology. The results demonstrate that this process is more energy-efficient than conventional technologies.
