Thermodynamics for multi-component CO2 mixturesSince the CO2 stream involves several impurities, reliable thermodynamic models for multi-component CO2 mixtures are required. Existing commercial simulation tools are not able to provide correct thermodynamic information for such mixtures. Inaccuracy in thermodynamic models can result in inaccurate process simulation and inaccurate estimates of energy consumption, and often in overestimated water solubility.
The objectives of this task are:
Fluid dynamics for CO2 transport and injectionThe objective is to analyse and improve existing models for one-dimensional multi-component two-phase flow regarding their applicability to the case of CO2 transport and injection.
