As is increasingly recognised world wide, global warming is mainly caused by emission of greenhouse gases (mostly CO2) from the burning of fossil fuels. Different adsorbent screening approaches were applied to CO2 capture using hypothetical adsorbents, NaX, NaY, and Activated Carbon. Isothermal approaches were not suitable for the screening of adsorbents for CO2 capture because of the great amount of heat of adsorption for CO2. A new index, Capture Figure of Merit, is a better assessment tool for developing adsorbents. It could be readily converted to CO2 capture costs. Heat of adsorption played a very important role in cyclic adsorption process. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2007 AIChE Annual Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT 11/4-9/2007).
