Optimization and enhancement of CO2 sequestration in industrial wastes for environmental applications

This paper explores carbon capture and storage (CCS) through carbide lime waste (CLW), a by-product of acetylene production, under different conditions. This process is specifically designed to provide an onsite waste management solution for several industries that can easily be integrated into existing systems. In addition, the effect of the carbonation process on collected solids morphology and average particle size was studied. The structural and chemical characteristics of the carbonated carbide lime samples were investigated using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, TGA analysis, and Raman spectroscopy. The effect of carbonation conditions on the total dissolved solids and change in pH was studied. All carbonated products exhibited a calcite crystal structure with a specific morphology at each carbonation condition. High CLW concentration helped to form singular long rods and agglomerated spheroidal particles. In contrast, low CLW concentration promoted truncated prismatic morphology. The maximum pH reduction was honored at the highest CLW to water ratio. In addition, a maximum conductivity reduction of 96.87% was obtained at pH 12.7, and a CLW to water ratio of 1:10. Raman analyzer, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy confirmed the minimum CO 2 uptake value for the higher carbide lime to distilled water ratio. This is due to the increase in the concentration of calcium species in the CLW–water mixture, which will form a thin carbonation layer that is distributed among calcium species.
