About this Textbook

This book approaches the energy science sub-field carbon capture with an interdisciplinary discussion based upon fundamental chemical concepts ranging from thermodynamics, combustion, kinetics, mass transfer, material properties, and the relationship between the chemistry and process of carbon capture technologies. Energy science itself is a broad field that spans many disciplines -- policy, mathematics, physical chemistry, chemical engineering, geology, materials science and mineralogy -- and the author has selected the material, as well as end-of-chapter problems and policy discussions, that provide the necessary tools to interested students.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This work by Wilcox (Stanford Univ.) is the first engineering book focusing on carbon capture; it includes example problems, tables with industrial data … and a glossary of key terminology. It can be used by students and educators as a textbook for engineering classes as well as by professionals who must develop carbon capture processes and install carbon capture technologies. … it will have value in many countries where carbon capture is included in industrial processes. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (L. E. Erickson, Choice, Vol. 50 (3), November, 2012)
