Abstract : Impure steam is partially cooled on a first side of an energy transfer device, forming a condensate substantially free of C02 and other non-condensible gases. The condensate is separated from the impure steam and accumulated in a separator/accumulator. The condensate stream is conveyed through a control valve back to a second side of the energy transfer device for reheating to steam substantially free of C02 and other non-condensible gases
