Carbon capture and storage is undoubtedly a very hot and controversial topic.  With concerns around its commercial viability and the reductions in the efficiency of power plants trying to capture CO2, due to the amount of energy required to facilitate the process, it is uncertain at what rate this technology will be engrained in our everyday lives.

But, with the obvious benefits, it’s no surprise work and developments in carbon capture are continuing to happen behind the scenes. Plans for low carbon zones and pilot test schemes are on the rise. Desorption tanks are primarily made out of steel and combined with the use of mono ethanolamine. This is a highly corrosive material being exposed to extremely aggressive environments and high temperatures of around 130°C. The need for corrosion protection with high temperature epoxy material is essential and something we at Corroserve specialise in.
