Electrical Swing Adsorption (ESA) technology is an interesting option for rapid temperature swing adsorption to capture CO2 due to its highly efficient and rapid regeneration with the Joule effect. Electric current, electrification time and N2 purge rate have strong effects on ESA processing performance. In this study, these operating parameters were investigated experimentally and theoretically, for their effect on CO2 product purity, recovery, harvest time and energy consumption. For a feed stream of 15% CO2 balanced with N2 using a MAST
