Abstract

The increase in concentration of CO2 in atmosphere has resulted in the increase of global warming day by day. The world is faced with an intrinsic environmental responsibility, i.e. the minimization of greenhouse gas emission to a minimum level. This rise in atmospheric CO2 levels is primarily due the expanding use of fossil fuels for energy. Global warming and climate change concerns have triggered global efforts to reduce the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). In this paper adsorption of CO2 using adsorbents prepared from cheaply and easily available raw materials is being done. Adsorbents were prepared from dried sugarcane bagasse, wood shavings and alkali treated crude TiO2. The final adsorbent that will be used in the reactor was then selected by testing the adsorbent for particle size and surface area. This gas was used as the feed to the reactor and it will be either a flue gas or vehicle exhaust gas that will first undergo H2S removal. The particle size analysis and the surface area analysis along with porosity analysis that was carried out on the prepared adsorbents helped to choose the final adsorbent that can be used in a reactor, as higher the surface area of the adsorbent the better it is for adsorption
