Electrochemical method for air purification from СО2

The method for air purification from carbon dioxide gas in operating electrochemical cell at oxygen pump mode is considered. The work suggests a mechanism of CO2 removal. The effect of a number of parameters to CO2 removal is discussed. A scheme of module application for air purification from CO2 completed with Alkaline Fuel Cell Stack (AFCS) is proposed. Provided is a method for alkaline electrolyte decarbonization.
