Title:
SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CARBON DIOXIDE CAPTURE IN AN AIR COMPRESSION AND EXPANSION SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2011/056301
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A system (100, 182) includes a compression system fluidly coupled to a compartment (134) to compress a first quantity of gas for storage in the compartment, the compression system (106) including a compression path (132) to convey the first quantity of gas; an expansion system (110) fluidly coupled to the compartment to expand a second quantity of gas from the compartment, the expansion system including an expansion path (160) to convey the second quantity of gas; a first path fluidly coupled to the compression path to convey the first quantity of gas to the compartment; a second path fluidly coupled to the expansion path to convey the second quantity of gas from the compartment to the expansion system; and a separation unit fluidly coupled to one of the first path, second path, compression path, and expansion path, wherein the separation unit (138, 168, 170, 172) removes a quantity of carbon dioxide from one of the first and second quantities of gas.
