The present invention provides a process for recovering a basic amine compound which comprises the steps of (a) supplying a CO.sub.2 -containing gas to a carbon dioxide absorption unit in which an absorbing solution, which contains a basic amine compound, absorbs carbon dioxide; (b) bringing the gas, from which carbon dioxide has been removed, into vapor-liquid contact with a washing water at a temperature from 20 to 60.degree. C. in an amine recovering unit of a carbon dioxide removal tower, recovering part of the basic amine compound accompanying the gas into the water phase and discharging the gas as an exhaust gas of the carbon dioxide removal tower; and (c) collecting the basic amine compound which remains in the exhaust gas of the carbon dioxide removal tower by passing the exhaust gas pass through a demister at a temperature from 20 to 60.degree. C. The basic amine compound can be recovered efficiently from the gas of the carbon dioxide removal tower by using the above process.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
