Fossil fuel power plants generate carbon dioxide in huge amount, its capturing and storing has received widespread attention and is viewed as an indispensable action for CO2 discharge reduction. In this study, CO adsorption capacities were resolved for zeolite 4A. Breakthrough adsorption studies were done. Fix bed for carbon dioxide adsorption and desorption over zeolite 4A has been consider. Zeolite characterized by ultraviolet and unmistakable spectrometers, X-beam diffraction (XRD), surface area zone of the adsorbent measured by standard strategy for Brunauer, Emmett and Teller (BET) by Nitrogen adsorption strategies and thermogravimetric investigation (TGA). The adsorption behaviour of carbon dioxide (CO) on these adsorbents was explored at 30C, 55C, 70C. Adsorption limit has been found for zeolite 4A at 30C, 55C, 70C. is 336.77, 607.2, 406.38 mg/gm of zeolite individually for given technique for adsorption. CO2 desorption has been studied.
