Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions must be reduced in order to prevent 2°C warming by 2100 and avoid substantial negative environmental and economic consequences. Converting CO2 into useful products and materials can improve the economic viability of carbon capture and storage (CCS), potentially creating a multi-billion dollar commodity market. This special issue will focus on experimental and numerical work related to carbon dioxide (CO2) Utilization. To date, the largest industry sector for CO2 utilization has been injection as part of enhanced oil recovery operations; however, utilization schemes with larger carbon storage timeframes are encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the conversion of CO2 to value-added chemicals and fuels; bioconversions; use in building materials (i.e., cements), and CO2 mineralization above and below Earth’s surface. Utilization analyses must include a “good faith” attempt at estimating the net carbon impact of each technique considered. In addition, we welcome studies which consider the economics of utilization pathways in addition to technical discussion.

TEA of a Unique Two-Pathways Process for Post-Combustion CO2 Capture

Received: 01 August 2022;  Published: 13 October 2022;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2204033


A unique two-Pathways process using aqueous sodium glycinate for CO2 capture from a split flue gas stream emitted from 600 MWe post-combustion coal power plant was developed in Aspen Plus v.10. The split gas flow rate used was 44.75 ton/h and contained 0.0023 mol% SO2 and 13.33 mol% CO2 [...]

Variation of CO2-Brine Contact Angles on Natural Rocks of Different Compositions

Received: 05 September 2021;  Published: 05 November 2021;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2104046


Contact angles were measured for CO2-brine interactions on 20 different rocks that represent the properties of various CO2 storage depositional environments to characterize the wettability during geologic carbon storage. Three different CO2 phases (gaseous, liquid [...]
