Limestone powder CO2 scrubber – artificial limestone weathering for reduction of flue gas CO2 emissions

Slowing down climate change is one of the most important challenges of our age. Exceptional importance attaches in this context to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, and those of carbon dioxide (CO2), in particular. Artificial limestone weathering opens up new perspectives in the reduction of CO2 emissions.

1 Introduction

Various technologies for the removal of CO₂ from the flue gas produced in combustion processes have been researched and tested in trial and pilot facilities in the past already. All of these “post-combustion” processes have in common the fact that they generally utilise...
