    Hello there,

    Could somebody please help me with my FYP (Final Year Project). There are 2 other people on my team. We're working with Pepsi Lays Plant. They've got a problem of potato degradation in their storage rooms and wish to install a CO2 scrubber. I've decided to construct a prototype of the BASF CO2 scrubber. I'm going to use monoethanolamine as the CO2 absorbing agent.

    1. Do you think it's a good FYP?
    2. Is monoethanolamine going to help the cause? Is it really expensive?
    3. Is it possible to construct a lab scale prototype of the 9 million Euros scrubber?

    I've another project option about designing a storm water drainage system for the city but I preferred this scrubber project.

    Has anybody constructed a prototype before? If yes, would you please tell me how you did it?
    Thanks


    Sana

    Seems reasonable for a project. The chemical of course is currently used for CO2 scrubbing and can be recycled. As far a building a prototype sure that would be feasible and probably rather easy to work out the efficiency. It would not take much of the chemical because it is used as an aqeous soultion. Not sure how the regeneration cycle works though. This stuff is quite toxic flamable and probably carcenogenic so you would probably have to be careful with it and do the work in a hood.
