This work is on optimizing the absorption of CO2 from post combustion by using MEA(monoethanolamine) as solvent. The aim is to report detailed experimental concentration and temperature profiles for various operation conditions. In this work the height and liquid/gas ratio has been changed to find the optimum operation conditions. The data has been compared with theoretical values based on mathematical models.
