  • Publication number: 20220193601
    Abstract: An absorbent for absorbing CO2 or H2S, or both of CO2 and H2S in a gas contains, as components, (a) a secondary linear monoamine, (b) a tertiary linear monoamine, and (c) a secondary cyclic diamine. When the concentration of the secondary linear monoamine (a) is more than 30% by weight and less than 45% by weight and the concentration of the tertiary linear monoamine (b) is more than 15% by weight and less than 30% by weight, absorbability of CO2 or H2S, or both of CO2 and H2S is good, and releasability of CO2 or H2S that have been absorbed during regeneration of the absorbent is good. The amount of steam of a reboiler used during regeneration of the absorbent in a CO2 recovery unit can be thus reduced.
