Great efforts have been directed towards understanding the relevant phenomena and foster innovation in the field of CO2 capture and sequestration (CCS). Knowledge about the CO2 sorption properties (adsorption capacity, pressure regimes, energetics and kinetics) is essential to the design of advanced materials capable of capturing CO2 in industrial settings. A twin Calvet calorimeter coupled with a high pressure gas dosing system offers a means to characterize materials for CO2 capture and sequestration applications under critical and supercritical conditions. New and published data will be presented to illustrate capabilities and advantages of the Calvet calorimeters for high pressure research with a special focus on CO2 capture applications.
