BMF 55 - Nitrosamines and Nitramines

It is well known that nitrosamines and nitramines can be dangerous to human health, animals and plant lives. There are several technologies which release them into the environment.


CO2 capture causes a huge interest in these days. Solvents used for CO2 capture are often a mixture of severalamines according to the latest developments in this field. These amine compositions are not always known in detail.However, it is known that the amine blends for CO2 capture are recycled, but as a side reaction/effect a certain percentageof the amines are either degraded or emitted to air. The released amines are often unstable on air, and degradeto toxic substances like nitrosamines and nitramines.
