Today the eco-system of our planet faces a threat of high magnitude in the form of global warming. Global efforts are being made to face these threats by the establishment and implantation of the Kyoto Protocol and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. As responsible global citizens and the citizens of Kuwait, it is our duty to place our country on the forefront in the fight to protect our environment. The company is proposing to build a global sized Carbon dioxide (CO2) production facility in Kuwait.
The design calls for a booster station to draw the entire raw gas from the source to the Liquefaction plant at the project location. Different stages of de-superheating, water knockout and compression are being carried out to remove all the moisture from the raw gas. Absorber columns, stripper columns, re-boilers & dryers are used to remove sulfur & other impurities from CO2 and for drying. The plant also has other equipments like pumps, blowers, compressors etc., as necessary for the process. Propane compressors are used for the refrigeration system to ultimately cools the Liquid CO2 to -23oF.
Both the plants will utilize a state of the art process controller. The operator will be able to monitor and control the process through a man machine interface package. The PLC furnished control will increase reliability and flexibility of system control and the compressors will be controlled with PLC logic in lieu of local panels. All system alarm and shutdown conditions will be monitored and appropriate response initiated by the PLC system. Further provision exists for the manufacturer to provide technical support by connecting the complete control system with Internet access.
