CO2 separation from the mixture of CO2/H-2 using gas hydrates: Experimental and modeling
Hydrate formation is a new technique to separate hydrogen from carbon dioxide. In this way, modeling and prediction of gas hydrate kinetics is very important. Several experiments have been conducted to study the hydrate formation from pure carbon dioxide and mixture of hydrogen and carbon dioxide in a stirred reactor in different temperatures, pressures and compositions. The mass transfer approach model was used to predict the mass transfer coefficient for each experiment, and the dependency of temperature and pressure has been studied. It was observed that the mass transfer coefficient of CO2 in the mixture is close to the pure system. The result of this work shows that the pure data on the kinetics for CO2 hydrate formation is applicable for the case of CO2 separation from the mixture of carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
