This spotlight focuses on the transport part of carbon capture and the potential for corrosion in pipelines. When CO2 is capture from combustion, it will contain impurities like SO2, NO2, O2, and H2O. These impurities react to form H2SO4 and HNO3 which can cause corrosion problems in transport pipelines.
We will present OLI’s recent efforts to quantify the formation of these acids and show how they are modeled in OLI Studio and Flowsheet: ESP. We will simulate the process from the CO2 capture step to the well injection step. This will allow the audience to see how the composition of the CO2 changes at each point in the process.
