  • Patent number: 4568364
    Abstract: Apparatus and a method for removal of acid gases from a first gas rich in carbon dioxide and for desulfurizing a second gas lean in carbon dioxide but containing sulfur compounds as impurities. The method includes contacting the first gas with a solvent capable of extracting carbon dioxide and sulfur compounds from the first gas. Then, the solvent containing carbon dioxide is separated from the solvent containing sulfur compounds. The second gas is then contacted with said solvent containing carbon dioxide under conditions sufficient to cause said solvent containing carbon dioxide to extract sulfur compounds from said second gas and to release carbon dioxide. The desulfurized second gas is thereafter separated from the solvent containing sulfur compounds from the second gas.
