A mechanistic concept that presents the fluid dynamic and mass-transfer behavior inside the structured packings used for CO2 absorption was proposed. The concept was developed on the basis of liquid irrigation features through the packing elements, which could be determined from the details of the packing geometry. The results led to a better understanding of the fluid dynamics within the columns fitted with structured packings. This could be used to design and simulate the CO2 absorption process or even to optimize and customize the geometric features of new structured packings as they are developed to fit particular separation tasks.
