About this book

This book focuses on an important technology for mineralizing and utilizing CO2 instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. CO2 mineralization and utilization demonstrated in the waste-to-resource supply chain can “reduce carbon dependency, promote resource and energy efficiency, and lessen environmental quality degradation,” thereby reducing environmental risks and increasing economic benefits towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). In this book, comprehensive information on CO2 mineralization and utilization via accelerated carbonation technology from theoretical and practical considerations was presented in 20 Chapters. It first introduces the concept of the carbon cycle from the thermodynamic point of view and then discusses principles and applications regarding environmental impact assessment of carbon capture, storage and utilization technologies. After that, it describes the theoretical and practical considerations for “Accelerated Carbonation (Mineralization)” including analytical methods, and systematically presents the carbonation mechanism and modeling (process chemistry, reaction kinetics and mass transfer) and system analysis (design and analysis of experiments, life cycle assessment and cost benefit analysis). It then provides physico-chemical properties of different types of feedstock for CO2 mineralization and then explores the valorization of carbonated products as green materials. Lastly, an integral approach for waste treatment and resource recovery is introduced, and the carbonation system is critically assessed and optimized based on engineering, environmental, and economic (3E) analysis. The book is a valuable resource for readers who take scientific and practical interests in the current and future Accelerated Carbonation Technology for CO2 Mineralization and Utilization.

About the authors

Pen-Chi Chiang is a Distinguished Professor of Graduate Institute of Environmental Engineering, National Taiwan University, and a Director of Carbon Cycle Research Center of National Taiwan University. He obtained Ph.D. degree from the Department of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, USA in 1982. Among his current interests is CO2 capture and utilization by mineralization using various alkaline wastes. He worked on developing innovative process for mineralization such as slurry reactor, autoclave, and rotating packed bed. Along the way, the critical issues on CO2 mineralization research, such as process chemistry, reaction kinetics, mass transfer, energy consumption and cost-effective analyses, have been comprehensively studied. Meanwhile, the developed CO2 mineralization process has been applied into steelmaking and petrochemical industries in Taiwan. On the other hand, he worked on establishment of policies and strategies for deploying CO2-related technologies in Taiwan. Dr. Chiang has published > 200 paper papers in the above area since 1990.

Shu-Yuan Pan is a Research Associate in Carbon Cycle Research Center, National Taiwan University. He received his Ph.D. degree in environmental engineering from National Taiwan University in 2017. He had worked as a visiting scholar in RWTH Aachen University, Germany in 2014, and Argonne National Laboratory, USA in 2015. Pan was named the Green Talents of the Year (2013) by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) of Germany. He is a professional engineer (PE) in environmental engineering licensed in Taiwan since 2012. Among his current interests is development of accelerated carbonation process and high-gravity technique. He also worked on system optimization using 3E (Engineering, Environment, Economy) analysis for energy-related process from a life-cycle point of view. In addition, he is recently working on electrochemical process for CO2 capture and water reuse. Along the way, he has published >25 papers in reputed SCI journals and 1 contributed book chapter.
