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.
