Efforts to minimize the heat trapping effects of greenhouse gases on climate include purifying, capturing, and storing (sequestering) carbon dioxide in geologic formations. These formations include oil and gas reservoirs, saline aquifers, and coal seams. It is critical that the stored carbon dioxide does not leak back into the atmosphere too rapidly, and carbon sequestration sites are equipped with sensors to detect carbon dioxide leaks.
SOLVAir Select 200 trona (a natural form of sodium sesquicarbonate) offers a high-assay, low-cost alternative to acid neutralization. When Select 200 trona is used as a dry sorbent injected into an exhaust duct, the trona readily reacts with acid gases to form a safe, non-corrosive waste product that will not damage equipment.
