The capture of CO2 from gas streams has been achieved by the utilization of amine-enriched fly ash carbon sorbent system. The initial fly ash carbon sorbents were generated by the chemical treatment of carbon-enriched fly ash concentrates with a 3-chloropropylamine-hydrochloride (CPAHCL) solution at 25 °C. It was determined that these amine-enriched fly ash carbon sorbents performed at a 9% CO2 capture capacity based on commercially available sorbents. The chemical sorption performance of these amine-enriched fly ash carbon sorbents will be described within this paper.
