Abstract

See full text

The present disclosure provides a method and apparatus for removing a contaminant, such as carbon dioxide, from a gas stream, such as ambient air. The contaminant is removed from the gas stream by a sorbent, which is regenerated in a regeneration unit either by utilizing a thermal swing or a humidity swing or a combination thereof. Heat is conserved in the present disclosure by employing a heat exchanger to transfer heat from the regenerated sorbent to an amount of sorbent that is loaded with the contaminant prior to regeneration. The heat exchanger may employ water or another fluid as a refrigerant to draw heat from the regenerated sorbent and transferring that heat to the loaded sorbent.
