Abstract: Mineral carbonation is a realistic route for capture and storage of carbon dioxide. The principal advantages of this approach are the chemical stability and storage safety of mineral carbonates, the opportunities for process integration available, and the potential for conversion of low-value materials into useful products. In this work the valorisation of alkaline waste materials from thermal processes by mineral carbonation utilizing intensified and integrated mineral carbonation routes is explored. Process intensification aims at providing the paradigm-shifting techniques needed to revolutionize the chemical engineering industry in the 21st century, particularly focussing on improvements towards process efficiency, yield and sustainability. The combination of process intensification and process integration strategies has the potential to produce economically feasible and industrially acceptable carbonation technologies that can soon be implemented at large-scale, several examples of which are already proven at the laboratory scale and are herein discussed.
