influe gas from anthropogenic emission is one of the major contributors for global warming among greenhouse gases (GHG). Alkaline metal oxide (CaO, MgO, etc) adsorbents got industrial importance due to its use at high temperature CO2
capture in coal gasification to separate hydrogen gas. In this paper, we discussed on the synthesis methods of mechanical mixing, freeze granulation and dispersion methods of adsorbents for CO2
capture. Operational issues of packed bed reactor used for CC using the alkaline earth metals doped flyash. Pore size and surface areas dependence of monolithic pellets on carbonation - calcination temperatures. CC variation with monolithic pellet size and carbonation temperatures. Breakthrough curves of adsorption for the adsorbents were discussed. Adsorbents of limestone doped with flyash were analyzed using various analytical tools and the findings were reported.
