In this study, trisodium phosphate (TSP) was selected as a base absorbent and five additives, including triethylenetetramine (TETA), 2-methylpiperazine (2-MPZ), 2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP), potassium glycinate (K-Gly) and potassium prolinate (K-Pro) were added to improve the absorption performance in terms of corrosion rate, absorption rate and CO2 loading capacity. The absorption experiments of various blend solutions have been carried out using a vapor-liquid equilibrium apparatus at additive mole fraction range from 0.2 to 0.4, CO2 partial pressures up to 50 kPa and at temperatures 303.15, 313.15 and 323.15 K. The results indicated that all the evaluated TSP + additives solutions have higher CO2 solubility and lower corrosion rate compared to MEA. However, the only TETA + TSP showed a better absorption rate than MEA. Moreover, the absorption rate for TSP mixtures containing amine additives were all faster than the single TSP. Finally, ANOVA analysis was employed for all the blend solutions and a correlation for predicting CO2 solubility was successfully developed.
