In 2015, the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM DA), operated a test campaign using aqueous monoethanolamine (MEA) solvent at 30 wt%. The main objective was to demonstrate and document the performance of the TCM DA Amine Plant located in Mongstad, Norway. This paper will present several aspects concerning degradation of the solvent and atmospheric emissions from amine based CO2 removal processes. The work aims to; (1) quantify the amounts and compositions of the degraded solvent (2) report results from atmospheric emissions measurements of amines and amine based degradation products; and (3) present Ambient Air measurement done during a 2 month campaign.
