This study developed a strategy for production of dimethyl carbonate from flue gas. In this strategy, Carbon dioxide is captured from flue gas by using monoethanolamine-based carbon dioixde absorption/desorption subsystems. Then, captured carbon dioxide is converted to dimethyl carbonate over a CeO2 catalyst. This study designed a heat exchanger network for reducing energy requirements of our process. The technoeconomic evaluation of this study shows that the integrated process strategy results in a minimum selling price of US$2.06 per kg.
