The article presents a study on the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a flue gas system within a high performance scrubber called packed tower. The study used several parameters to evaluate the absorbent utilization (AU) and CO2 removal efficiency (RE) including the rate of gas flow, CO2 concentration and initial pH of the ammonia solution. Results show that the optimum AU and CO2 RE are 19% and 93%, respectively.

    Composting of N rich organic materials often leads to N loss via ammonia volatilization. Literature references from as early as 1922 have suggested gypsum can prevent N loss from manure. Millions of tons of high quality by-product gypsum are produced each year in the United States as a result of...
