CO2 sequestration modeling in aquifers from an analytical point of view was studied. The driving force was based on a description of a model that analyzes the mechanisms of supercritical CO2 disposal in aquifers. The CO2 presence was analyzed from two different aspects, as gas bubble formation and as dissolution in brine. In the model, for the determination of the pressure distribution in the gas bubble, a constant injection rate was taken into consideration. With the formation of the gas bubble, the gravitational effects caused the CO2 to raise and accumulate under the caprock. For this accumulation process, a maximum bubble thickness was determined to avoid leakage through the fractures in the caprock. For the CO2 that is in the dissolved phase in the aquifer the salinity calculations were taken into consideration. One effect of salinity was that it causes an increase in brine viscosity resulting in a decrease in sweep efficiency.

CO2 hydrogenation to methanol and dimethyl ether at atmospheric pressure using Cu-Ho-Ga/gamma-Al2O3 and Cu-Ho-Ga/ZSM-5: Experimental study and thermodynamic analysis
Tuygun, Cansu; İpek Torun, Bahar (2021-01-01)
CO2 valorization through chemical reactions attracts significant attention due to the mitigation of greenhouse gas effects. This article covers the catalytic hydrogenation of CO2 to methanol and dimethyl ether using Cu-Ho-Ga containing ZSM-5 and gamma-Al2O3 at atmospheric pressure and at temperatures of 210 degrees C and 260 degrees C using a CO2:H-2 feed ratio of 1:3 and 1:9. In addition, the thermodynamic limitations of methanol and DME formation from CO2 was investigated at a temperature range of 100-400...

Although there are a number of mathematical modeling studies for carbon dioxide (CO2) injection into aquifer formations, experimental studies are limited and most studies focus on injection into sandstone reservoirs as opposed to carbonate ones. This study presents the results of computerized tomography (CT) monitored laboratory experiments to analyze permeability and porosity changes as well as to characterize relevant chemical reactions associated with injection and storage of CO2 in carbonate formations....
CO2 hydrogenation to methanol over supported copper and gallium based catalysts at the atmospheric pressure
Osmanağa, Sezer; İpek Torun, Bahar; Önal, Işık; Department of Chemical Engineering (2022-8)
The continuous increase of the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has been negatively impacting the environment, due to its contribution in the global warming. Hence, it is necessary for the current CO2 valorization techniques to advance in order to make use of CO2. A possible technique is the CO2 hydrogenation to methanol and DME. The process of CO2 hydrogenation to methanol has been taking place in industry for about a century. However, due to the thermodynamic limitation imposed by the reaction stoichio...
CO2 mitigation from the flue gas of the iron steel making industry by microalgal cultures
Çaylı, Direniş; Bayramoğlu, Tuba Hande; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi; Uludağ Demirer, Sibel (null; 2015-06-15)
Integration of CO2 mitigation with nutrient removal from different wastewater sources can be realized by microalgae growth. In spite of being an option with significant environmental benefits, this technology still suffers from achieving high performances since atmospheric concentration of CO2 limits microalgae growth; i.e. biomass accumulation. This is why the use of flue gas with CO2 concentrations of 20-25% (by volume) should be considered as an inorganic C source for the microalgae culture reactors. Thi...
