The WP3 on Chemical Metrology has finalised a literature survey on current state-of-the-art for the material compatibility of vessels for the sampling of CO2 for CCUS.
The report reviews the current state of the art for the material compatibility of the vessels (including cylinders, bags and sorbent tubes) that are used to sample CO2. The choice of vessels depends on many parameters, including the pressure and temperature of the gas at the sampling point, safety aspects, requirements/ recommendations in standards, transport regulations and the suitability of the vessel.
It is crucial to ensure that the sample provided to the laboratory is representative, which requires
knowledge about the stability of the impurities in the carbon dioxide stored in sampling vessels.
