This paper provides a discussion of the experimental results obtained at the amine-based carbon capture pilot plant having the capacity of 200 m3n/h of flue gas, using 30 wt% ethanolamine solution as a solvent. The objective was to prove the superiority of application of advanced amine flow systems as well as of the novel stripper internal heater fulfilling pilot Technology Readiness Level. Standard process flow sheet, multi absorber feed and split-flow process modifications with and without stripper interheating were examined. A vast number of process parameters were recorded during the trials. The data were critically analysed, compared and presented in the paper. Demonstrated process flow modifications resulted in a reduction of the reboiler heat duty by about 5%, while using internal stripper interheatingby 9÷11 %, comparing to standard amine-based carbon capture plant.
