Gas compressor flue gas has sufficient heat content that heat recovery is practical. Steam and electrical power can be generated in this manner which reduces the utility cost of removing carbon dioxide from the flue gas.

A survey of various methods of removing carbon dioxide from flue gas has shown that monoethanolamine (MEA) is the best chemical absorbent at the low pressures available for this process.

A system has been designed to compress, dehydrate, and transport carbon dioxide to the receiving oil reservoir which could be 10 or 100 miles away from the available source.
