The concern of climate change and global warming has consecutively risen to progress research fields pledging to find the possible solutions. Increasing use of fossil fuels leads to an increase in CO2 emission and has become a major task to be deal with. For industrial applications, aqueous solutions of amines are extensively used as chemical absorbent or solvent. However, amine reaction with CO2 results in stable carbamate formation, which in turn leads to high energy usage for regeneration and promote additional corrosion problems. To overcome these restrictions, this study proposes a methodology to analyze the performance of new solvent namely amino acid salt solution. Evaluation of solvent performance in terms of CO2 loading and designing of acid gas removal system, requires pressure solubility data and design properties like density, pH value and refractive index.
