An earlier developed numerical method is applied to the absorption of CO2 into solutions of blends of amines. Other experimental results are evaluated with the numerical model. It is shown that a rigorous numerical solution of the differential equations describing the mass transfer gives more insight into the actual process than analytical approximations based on a reduction of the number of reactions by neglecting or lumping reactions.
