STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT Not applicable. REFERENCE TO A MICROFICHE APPENDIX Not applicable. FIELD The disclosure relates to the separation of one or more gaseous components from a process stream using an ionic liquid solvent. BACKGROUND There are many process streams in commercial processing facilities, including facilities in the chemical, petrochemical, polymerization, oil, and gas industries, which contain two or more fluid components. Examples of process streams containing two or more fluid components include: polymerization process streams, ethane cracker process streams, natural gas process streams, syngas process streams, biomass gasification process streams, Fischer-Tropsch process streams, alkane dehydrogenation process streams, and alcohol dehydration process streams. Sometimes it is desirable to separate the fluid components of a process stream so as to “upgrade” the process stream and/or to recover a fluid component of value. Separation techniques include conventional distillation, absorption using ionic liquid membranes, and absorption using aqueous solutions of metal salts. Distillation requires a large number of stages and/or high reflux ratios when fluid components have close boiling points and can be cost-prohibitive. Ionic liquid membranes are limited by membrane diffusion rates and can have poor flux or require significant capital expenditure for commercial applications. The water in an aqueous solution of metal salts has a significant vapor pressure which makes recovery of the separated component from the aqueous solution inefficient (e.g., water is typically carried with the component after the component is separated from the aqueous solution, requiring de-watering). There is an ongoing need for improved separation techniques for process streams in commercial processing facilities. SUMMARY The disclosed embodiments include a method comprising providing a process stream comprising a gaseous component; capturing at least a portion of the gaseous component from the process stream by an ionic liquid solvent; and recovering at least a portion of a captured gaseous component from the ionic liquid solvent. In embodiments, at least a portion of a second gaseous component from the process stream is captured by the ionic liquid solvent, and the method further comprises recovering at least a portion of the second gaseous component from the ionic liquid solvent. In embodiments, at least a portion of a second gaseous component from the process stream is uncaptured by the ionic liquid solvent, and the method further comprises recovering at least a portion of the uncaptured second gaseous component from a membrane unit. The disclosed embodiments include a system comprising a process stream comprising a gaseous component; a separator comprising an ionic liquid solvent, wherein the separator receives the process stream, wherein the ionic liquid solvent captures at least a portion of the gaseous component; a captured stream exiting the separator and comprising the captured gaseous component captured in the ionic liquid solvent; and a regenerator to receive the captured stream, wherein the regenerator regenerates the ionic liquid solvent and emits the recovered gaseous component. In embodiments, the ionic liquid solvent further captures at least a portion of a second gaseous component from the process stream, the captured stream further comprises the captured second gaseous component, and the regenerator emits the recovered second gaseous component. In embodiments, the ionic liquid solvent does not capture at least a portion of a second gaseous component from the process stream, and the system further comprises an uncaptured stream exiting the separator and comprising the uncaptured second gaseous component. In embodiments, the system may further comprise a membrane unit to recover the second gaseous component. The foregoing has outlined rather broadly the features and technical advantages of the disclosed inventive subject matter in order that the following detailed description may be better understood.

The system 100 may comprise a separator 110 and a regenerator 120 . A process stream 111 comprising a gaseous component (optionally, a second gaseous component) may feed to the separator 110 , which receives the process stream 111 . The separator 110 may comprise an ionic liquid solvent, and the ionic liquid solvent may capture at least a portion of the gaseous component (optionally, at least a portion of the second gaseous component). A captured stream 113 comprising the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component) captured by the ionic liquid solvent may exit from the separator 110 and flow to the regenerator 120 , and the regenerator 120 may receive the captured stream 113 . A portion of the process stream 111 which is not captured by the ionic liquid solvent in the separator 110 may exit the separator 110 and flow through uncaptured stream 112 for further processing, use, sale, flare, etc. The regenerator 120 may regenerate the ionic liquid solvent and emit the recovered gaseous component (optionally, recovered second gaseous component). The recovered gaseous component (optionally, recovered second gaseous component) may flow via stream 121 from the regenerator 120 for further processing, use, sale, etc. The regenerated ionic liquid solvent may flow from the regenerator 120 to the separator 110 through solvent stream 122 . The ionic liquid solvent may generally circulate through a solvent circulation system comprising the separator 110 , captured stream 113 , the regenerator 120 , and the solvent stream 122 . The captured stream 113 may comprise a heater 114 capable of heating the captured stream 113 as the captured gaseous component (optionally, captured second gaseous component) flows to the regenerator 120 . The solvent stream 122 may comprise a cooler 123 capable of cooling the solvent stream as the regenerated ionic liquid solvent flows to the separator 110 , and a pump 124 for providing a motive force for flowing the regenerated ionic liquid solvent. The system 100 may further comprise one or more compressors, pumps, heat exchangers, valves, control devices, safety devices, or similar apparatuses, not shown in FIG. 1 . Such apparatuses may be included in system 100 according to techniques recognized by one skilled in the art with the aid of this disclosure. In embodiments, the gaseous component of the process stream 111 may comprise ethylene, isobutane, or an acid gas (e.g., CO 2 and/or H 2 S). In additional embodiments, the second gaseous component of the process stream 111 may comprise ethylene, isobutane or an acid gas (e.g., CO 2 and/or H 2 S). As described above, the process stream 111 may comprise a second gaseous component, and the ionic liquid solvent may capture at least a portion of the second gaseous component. In embodiments, the capture of at least a portion of the second gaseous component is in addition to the capture of at least a portion of the gaseous component. In an embodiment, the gaseous component comprises ethylene and the second gaseous component comprises isobutane. In an alternative embodiment, the gaseous component comprises carbon dioxide, and the second gaseous component comprises hydrogen sulfide. In an embodiment, the ionic liquid solvent may capture at least a portion of the gaseous component; additionally or alternatively, the ionic liquid solvent may capture at least a portion of the second gaseous component; additionally or alternatively, the ionic liquid solvent may not capture at least a portion of the second gaseous component. In embodiments, the ionic liquid solvent may capture the gaseous component and/or the second gaseous component via various mechanisms of capture. In an embodiment, at least a portion of the gaseous component is captured by the ionic liquid solvent via absorption, dissolution, adsorption, complexation, or combinations thereof. In an additional embodiment, at least a portion of the second gaseous component is captured by the ionic liquid solvent via absorption, dissolution, adsorption, complexation, or combinations thereof. In embodiments, the mechanism of capture of the gaseous component is the same as the mechanism of capture for the second gaseous component. For example, the gaseous component and the second gaseous component may both be captured via absorption, adsorption, dissolution, or complexation. In an alternative embodiment, the mechanism of capture of the gaseous component is different than the mechanism capture for the second gaseous component. For example, the gaseous component may be captured via absorption and the second gaseous component may be captured via adsorption or dissolution. In another example, the gaseous component may be captured via absorption with complexation and the second gaseous component may be captured via absorption without complexation. In embodiments, the process stream 111 may further comprise other fluid components such as other gaseous components. Other gaseous components of the process streams 111 may include hydrogen, nitrogen, ethane, natural gas, syngas, or combinations thereof. In embodiments, the concentration of the gaseous component and/or the second gaseous component in the process stream 111 may comprise greater than about 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, or greater by weight of the process stream 111 . In embodiments, the separator 110 may comprise a vessel configured to flow the ionic liquid solvent therethrough so as to selectively capture (e.g., absorb, adsorb, dissolve, complex, or combinations thereof) at least a portion of the gaseous component (optionally, a second gaseous component) from the process stream 111 comprising the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component) and one or more other fluid (e.g., gaseous) components. In an embodiment, the separator 110 may be configured to dissipate a gas (e.g., gaseous component, optionally second gaseous component, of process stream 111 ) within the ionic liquid solvent, for example, by bubbling the gas through the liquid. In an embodiment, the separator 110 may include a solvent circulation system configured to circulate the ionic liquid solvent through the separator 110 . Non-limiting examples of suitable separator configurations include an absorption tower; a pressure-swing absorber (PSA); a sparger tank; an agitation reactor; a vessel coupled with one or more compressors, one or more pumps 124 , and one or more heat exchangers (e.g., heater 114 , cooler 123 ); or combinations thereof. An example of a suitable separator is illustrated in Gas Processors Association, Engineering Data Book 10 th ed ., at FIG. 19-46. In an additional and/or alternative embodiment, the separator 110 may comprise a packed bed or column configured to maintain smaller bubble sizes (e.g., of the gas being dissipated within the ionic liquid solvent), for example, so as to maintain a relatively large surface area of contact between the gas and the ionic liquid solvent, for example, so as to maintain an efficiency of mass transfer and/or capture of the gas into the liquid. In an embodiment, the packing material of the packed bed or column may comprise a polymeric material, metallic material, or combinations thereof. In an embodiment, the separator 110 may have multiple packed beds or columns. In an embodiment, one or more sections of the separator 110 may have a packing material. In embodiments, the packing material may have a random packing or may have a structured packing. In embodiments, the separator 110 may comprise two or more sections. For example, a first section may operate at a first set of conditions (e.g., temperature, pressure, flow rate, mass flow ratio), and a second section may operate at a second set of conditions (e.g., temperature, pressure, flow rate, mass flow ratio). In embodiments, the separator 110 may function at times to capture, and at other times to uncapture, the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component). That is, the separator 110 may also function as a regenerator. In such embodiments, the temperature and pressure at which the separator 110 operates may depend upon the function. For example, the temperature and pressure of the separator 110 when operating to capture the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component) may be those disclosed herein for capturing the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component). The temperature and pressure of the separator 110 when operating to liberate the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component) may be those disclosed herein for the regenerator 120 . In such embodiments, the separator 110 may additionally or alternatively be configured to evacuate one or more gases (e.g., a previously captured and then liberated gas, such as olefin, acid gas, alkane) and/or to facilitate the release of the captured gas via a pressure differential. In embodiments, the separator 110 may be configured to provide or maintain a suitable partial pressure of a gaseous component of the process stream 111 . Such a suitable partial pressure may be about 14.8 psia to about 57.7 psia; alternatively, about 19.7 psia to about 47.7 psia; alternatively, about 19.7 psia to about 29.7 psia. In an embodiment, the separator 110 may be configured to provide or maintain an ethylene partial pressure from about 0 psia to about 100 psia. In an embodiment, the separator 110 may be configured for batch and/or continuous operation. In embodiments, the system 100 may comprise two or more separators (e.g., separator 110 and one or more other separators). For example, the system 100 may comprise two separators, each of which may be configured according to one of the embodiments disclosed herein. Embodiments having two or more separators may be configured for pressure swing absorption (PSA) of the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component). For example, by employing two or more separators, the system 100 may be configured to allow for continuous operation by absorbing the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component) into a “first batch” in the first separator while a “second batch” is prepared for absorption in a second separator. As such, by cycling between two or more suitable separators, a system may operate continuously. An example of a system having two or more separators is disclosed in U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 2012/0232232, published on Sep. 13, 2012, entitled “Ethylene Recovery By Absorption,” and incorporated herein by reference in its entirety. In embodiments, the separator 110 may be configured to have a liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio from about 1 to about 350; alternatively, from about 1 to about 200; alternatively, from about 10 to about 200; alternatively, from about 10 to about 100. In embodiments, the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio of the separator 110 may comprise a value such that at least a portion of the gaseous component is captured by the ionic liquid solvent. In additional or alternative embodiments, the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio of the separator 110 may comprise a value such that at least a portion of the gaseous component and at least a portion of a second gaseous component are captured by the ionic liquid solvent. Generally, a mass flow ratio which captures at least a portion of the gaseous component and at least a portion of the second gaseous component is greater than a mass flow ratio which captures only at least a portion of the gaseous component. In embodiments, a mass flow ratio which captures at least a portion of the gaseous component and at least a portion of the second gaseous component is substantially greater (e.g., about 2 times, about 3 times, about 4 times, about 5 times, about 6 times, about 7 times, about 8 times, about 9 times, about 10 times, about 11 times, about 12 times, about 13 times, about 14 times, about 15 times, or more) than a mass flow ratio which captures only at least a portion of the gaseous component. In an embodiment, the “liquid” of the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio may comprise the ionic liquid solvent; alternatively, the “liquid” of the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio may comprise the ionic liquid solvent and any combination of other liquids flowing in and/or through the separator 110 ; alternatively, the “liquid” of the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio may comprise the ionic liquid solvent and any combination of other liquids flowing in and/or through the solvent circulation system. In an embodiment, the “gas” of the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio may comprise the gaseous component of the process stream 111 ; alternatively, the “gas” of the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio may comprise the gaseous component and the second gaseous component of the process stream 111 ; alternatively, the “gas” of the liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio may comprise the any combination of gases flowing in and/or through the process stream 111 and/or the separator 110 (e.g., from the process stream 111 , from all streams flowing into the separator 110 , or from a combination of streams flowing into the separator 110 ). In embodiments where the separator 110 comprises two or more sections, the two or more sections may operate at the same or different liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio. For example, a first section of the separator 110 may operate at a first liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio and a second section may operate at a second liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio, wherein the first liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio is different than the second liquid-to-gas mass flow ratio. In an embodiment, the separator 110 may be capable of selectively inducing thermal and/or pressure fluctuations, variations, or cycles. For example, the separator 110 may cycle between temperatures and pressures for capturing the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component) and for uncapturing the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component). In embodiments, a temperature or temperatures at which the separator 110 operates may depend upon the function of the separator 110 at a given time. For example, the separator 110 may be configured to provide or maintain a first temperature (e.g., one or more of those disclosed for operation of the separator 110 ) for the purpose of capturing the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component), and the separator 110 may be configured to provide or maintain a second temperature (e.g., one or more of those disclosed for operation of the regenerator 120 ) for the purpose of regenerating the ionic liquid solvent, recovering the recovered gaseous component (optionally, second recovered gaseous component), or both. In embodiments where the separator 110 operates to capture the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component), the separator 110 may operate at a temperature from about 5° C. to about 50° C.; alternatively, from about 20° C. to about 40° C. In embodiments wherein the separator 110 operates to uncapture (i.e., liberate) the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component), the separator 110 may operate at a temperature from about 60° C. to about 450° C., at a temperature greater than the temperature of the separator 110 when functioning in the capturing mode, or both. In embodiments, a pressure or pressures at which the separator 110 operates may depend upon the function of the separator 110 at a given time. For example, the separator 110 may be configured to provide or maintain a first pressure (e.g., one or more of those disclosed for operation of the separator 110 ) for the purpose of capturing the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component), and the separator 110 may be configured to provide or maintain a second pressure (e.g., one or more of those disclosed for operation of the regenerator 120 ) for the purpose of regenerating the ionic liquid solvent, recovering the recovered gaseous component (optionally, second recovered gaseous component), emitting the recovered gaseous component (optionally, second recovered gaseous component), or combinations thereof. In embodiments wherein the separator 110 operates to capture the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component), the separator 110 may operate at a pressure from about 100 psia to about 250 psia. In embodiments wherein the separator 110 operates to uncapture (i.e., liberate) the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component), the separator 110 may operate at a pressure greater than or equal to about 14.7 psia, at a pressure less (e.g., 20 psi less) than the pressure at which the separator 110 operates when capturing the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component), or both. In embodiments, the ionic liquid solvent may generally comprise a cation, an anion, a Ag(I) salt, a Cu(I) salt, or combinations thereof. In an embodiment, the ionic liquid solvent may be capable of reversibly complexing, may be capable of absorbing, may be capable of adsorbing, may be capable of dissolving, or combinations thereof, at least a portion of the gaseous component of the process stream 111 . In additional or alternative embodiments, the ionic liquid solvent may be capable of reversibly complexing, may be capable of absorbing, may be capable of adsorbing, may be capable of dissolving, or combinations thereof, at least a portion of the second gaseous component of the process stream 111 . In an embodiment, the ionic liquid solvent may comprise a liquid phase at 14.7 psia and 25° C. In an embodiment, the ionic liquid solvent may be referred to as a room temperature ionic liquid (“RTIL”). Ionic liquid solvents disclosed herein may comprise a negligible vapor pressure at operating conditions of the disclosed systems, resulting in negligible loss of the ionic liquid solvent during operation. Moreover, use of the ionic liquid solvents disclosed herein reduces VOC emissions. In embodiments, the ionic liquid solvent may comprise a cation and an anion.

In embodiments, the flow of the process stream 111 components relative to the ionic liquid solvent in the separator 110 may be concurrent, countercurrent, or staged in sections of the separator 110 . In embodiments, components and/or portions of components of process stream 111 which are not captured by the ionic liquid solvent (e.g., in embodiments where at least a portion of the second gaseous component is not captured, where a third gaseous component is not captured) may flow exit the separator 110 and flow through uncaptured stream 112 . In embodiments, the uncaptured stream 112 may comprise hydrogen, nitrogen, ethane, isobutane, or combinations thereof. In alternative embodiments, the uncaptured stream 112 may comprise syngas.

In embodiments, at least a portion of the gaseous component (optionally, at least a portion of the second component) may exit from the separator 110 and flow to the regenerator 120 via captured stream 113 . Captured stream 113 may comprise the ionic liquid solvent, captured portions of the gaseous component (e.g., ethylene, CO 2 ), captured portions of the second gaseous component (e.g., isobutane, H 2 S), or combinations thereof. In embodiments, the regenerator 120 may comprise one or more vessels (e.g., in series, in parallel, or both) configured to regenerate the ionic liquid solvent, to liberate at least a portion of the captured gaseous component, to liberate at least a portion of the captured second gaseous component, or combinations thereof. In an embodiment, regenerator 120 may be heated to liberate the gaseous component (optionally, the second gaseous component) from the ionic liquid solvent so as to regenerate the ionic liquid solvent using one or more heat sources comprising cooling water, low-pressure steam, or combinations thereof. In an embodiment, regenerator 120 may be configured to operate on the basis of a temperature suitable to liberate (e.g., change a solubility, vaporize, desorb) the captured gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component) from the ionic liquid solvent in the regenerator 120 . In embodiments, the regenerator 120 may operate at a temperature greater than a temperature of the separator 110 , a temperature from about 60° C. to about 450° C., or combinations thereof. In additional or alternative embodiments, the regenerator 120 may operate at a temperature from about 93° C. to about 204° C.; alternatively, from about 93° C. to about 149° C.; alternatively, from about 149° C. to about 204° C. In an embodiment, regenerator 120 may be configured such that the components of the captured stream 113 experience a pressure differential when entering the regenerator 120 . In such an embodiment, the regenerator 120 may be configured to provide or maintain a suitable pressure suitable to liberate (e.g., change a solubility, vaporize, desorb) the captured gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component) from the ionic liquid solvent in the regenerator 120 .

In embodiments, the regenerator 120 may comprise a series of vessel which operate via pressure differential, wherein each of the vessels in the series operates at the same or different pressures. For example, the regenerator 120 may comprise two vessels in series in which the first vessel operates at a pressure disclosed herein for the regenerator 120 , and the second vessel operates at a pressure disclosed herein for the regenerator 120 which is lower than the pressure of the first vessel. In an embodiment, the regenerator 120 may be configured for batch and/or continuous processes. For example, the regenerator 120 may operate in traditional batch or continuous operations. In another example, two or more regenerators may operate in batch mode and alternate in operation such that regeneration of the ionic liquid solvent in the system 100 is continuous. In the regenerator 120 , the captured gaseous component(s) (e.g., gaseous component and, optionally, second gaseous component) of captured stream 113 may separate to form a recovered stream 121 comprising the recovered gaseous component (optionally, recovered second gaseous component) and a solvent stream 122 comprising the regenerated ionic liquid solvent.

The recovered stream 121 may further comprise other fluid components such as hydrogen, nitrogen, methane, ethane, propylene, propane, heavier hydrocarbons, or combinations thereof. Such components may be present in recovered stream 121 in various amounts due to capture of the fluid component by the ionic liquid solvent; however, the presence of one or more other fluid components in the recovered stream 121 is at levels lower than the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component) disclosed herein such that the recovery and purity levels of the gaseous component (optionally, second gaseous component) are met. FIG. 2 shows a process flow diagram of another embodiment of the disclosed system 200 .

System 200 further comprises a membrane unit 130 and associated streams 131 and 132 . Uncaptured gaseous components which are not captured in the separator 110 by the ionic liquid solvent may exit from the separator 110 and flow through uncaptured stream 112 to the membrane unit 130 for further processing. Generally, the separator 110 may capture a gaseous component of the process stream 111 (as described for FIG. 1 above), and uncaptured components of the process stream 111 (uncaptured in the separator 110 ) may exit from the separator 110 and flow to the membrane unit 130 via uncaptured stream 112 (as described for FIG. 1 above). The membrane unit 130 may comprise a membrane 135 which is selective to one or more fluid components (e.g., a second gaseous component) of the process stream 111 . Uncaptured stream 112 feeds uncaptured components to the membrane unit 130 .

One or more of the uncaptured components may selectively permeate through the membrane 135 to the permeate side 134 of the membrane 135 . The portions of the uncaptured components which do not permeate through the membrane 135 may comprise the retentate of the membrane 135 on the retentate side 133 of the membrane 135 . The permeate may flow from the permeate side 134 of the membrane 135 and through permeate stream 132 for further processing, use, flare, disposal, or sale. The retentate may flow from the retentate side 133 of the membrane 135 and through retentate stream 131 for further processing, use, flare, disposal, or sale.

For example, an alkane-selective membrane may be used to recover an uncaptured alkane in combination with a nitrogen-selective membrane. In another example, multiple membrane units may be used which are selective to H 2 S to achieve low levels of H 2 S. Operation of the system 200 shown in FIG. 2 may include, but is not limited to, two operational embodiments.

EXAMPLES The disclosure having been generally described, the following examples are given as particular embodiments of the disclosure and to demonstrate the practice and advantages thereof. It is understood that these examples are given by way of illustration and is not intended to limit the specification or the claims in any manner. A commercial process simulator was employed to generate models in accordance with the systems and/or methods disclosed herein. The models employed a system as shown in the figures. In the models, a process stream 111 feeds to the separator 110 . As is seen below, using an ionic liquid solvent as disclosed herein for the capture of gaseous components provides for high selectivity of the gaseous component to other components in the process stream 111 . Example 1 Example 1 utilizes the system 100 of FIG. 1 . Process stream 111 of FIG. 1 is fed to the bottom of the separator 110 . The composition and conditions for the process stream 111 of Example 1 are given in Table 1 below: TABLE 1 Mass flow Molar flow Molar Partial Composition (lb/hr) (kmol/hr) fraction pressure (psia) Hydrogen 31.06 7.1 0.29 59.3 Nitrogen 136.53 2.2 0.09 18.6 Ethane 169.14 2.6 0.11 21.5 Ethylene 728.54 11.8 0.49 99.4 I-Butane 62.04 0.5 0.02 4.1 Total 1127.31 24.2 1.00 203.0 Solvent stream 122 comprising the ionic liquid solvent is fed to the top of the separator 110 . The pressure of the separator 110 is about 186 psia, and the temperature is about 30° C. The ionic liquid solvent is [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag, and the concentration of Ag(I) in the ionic liquid solvent is about 1.8 N. In the separator 110 , gaseous hydrogen, nitrogen, ethane, ethylene and isobutane rise through the ionic liquid solvent, and ethylene is captured (via absorption and complexing as described herein) into the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag while isobutane is physisorbed. The ethylene which is complexed with the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag and isobutane which is physisorbed in [emim][Tf 2 N] exits from the separator 110 and flows to a regenerator 120 via captured stream 113 . Ethylene liberates (e.g., desorbs) and the isobutane liberates from the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag in the regenerator 120 , where the pressure is about 16 psia and temperature is about 93° C., so as to regenerate the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag and provide a recovered stream 121 comprising ethylene and isobutane. The regenerated [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag is recycled back to the separator 110 via solvent stream 122 . For a solvent stream 122 flow rate of 225,400 lb/hr, and a mass flow ratio of liquid to gas of about 200, ethylene recovery in recovered stream 121 is about 96.5% by weight of ethylene in the process stream 111 or by moles of ethylene in the process stream 111 , isobutane recovery is about 88% by weight of isobutane in the process stream 111 or by moles of isobutane in the process stream 111 , and the purity of the recovered ethylene and isobutane is about 90% by mole of ethylene and isobutane in the recovered stream 121 . Example 1 demonstrates an ionic liquid solvent as disclosed herein can selectively capture two gaseous components of the process stream 111 , i.e., in the case of Example 1, ethylene and isobutane. Moreover, the recovery of the two gaseous components is about 96.5% for ethylene and about 88% for isobutane; and the purity of the two gaseous components is about 90%. The capture of two gaseous components may avoid the need for separation of the second gaseous component (i.e., isobutane) from the process stream 111 in other equipment (i.e., in a membrane unit or other separating device). Such cases may reduce capital cost for process stream component separations and/or provide recovery of two gaseous components which may complement one another in subsequent use or sale, separations, processing, or combinations thereof. Example 2 Example 2 utilizes the system 100 of FIG. 1 . Process stream 111 of FIG. 1 comprising gaseous hydrogen, nitrogen, ethane, ethylene and isobutane is fed to the bottom of the separator 110 . The composition and conditions for the process stream 111 of Example 2 are given in Table 1 above. The solvent stream 122 comprising the ionic liquid solvent is fed to the top of the separator 110 . The pressure of the separator 110 is about 186 psia, and the temperature is about 30° C. The ionic liquid solvent is [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag, and the concentration of Ag(I) in the ionic liquid solvent is about 1.8 N. In the separator 110 , gaseous ethane, ethylene and isobutane rise through the ionic liquid solvent, and ethylene is captured (via absorption and complexing as described herein) into the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The ethylene which is complexed with the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag exits from the separator 110 and flows to a regenerator 120 via captured stream 113 . Ethylene liberates (e.g., desorbs) from the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag in the regenerator 120 , where the pressure is about 16 psia and temperature is about 149° C., so as to regenerate the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The regenerated [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag is recycled back to the separator 110 via solvent stream 122 . Recovered ethylene flows from the regenerator 120 into recovered stream 121 . For a solvent stream 122 flow rate of 16,905 lb/hr, and a mass flow ratio of liquid to gas of about 15, ethylene recovery in recovered stream 121 is about 97%, and the purity of the recovered ethylene is about 98.96%. Example 2 demonstrates an ionic liquid solvent as disclosed herein can selectively capture one gaseous component of the process stream 111 , i.e., in the case of Example 2, ethylene. Moreover, the recovery of the gaseous component is about 97% by weight of ethylene in the process stream 111 , and the purity of ethylene is about 98.96% by mole of ethylene in the recovered stream 121 . The selective capture of one gaseous component may avoid the need for separation of the gaseous component (i.e., ethylene) from other gaseous components subsequent to the regenerator 120 . Such cases may reduce capital cost for process stream component separations and/or provide selective recovery of a gaseous component which may otherwise be difficult, expensive, or inefficient to separate from the process stream 111 . Example 3 Example 3 utilizes the system 200 of FIG. 2 . Process stream 111 of FIG. 1 comprising gaseous hydrogen, nitrogen, ethane, ethylene and isobutane is fed to the bottom of the separator 110 . The composition and conditions of the process stream 111 for Example 3 are shown in Table 2 below: TABLE 2 Mass flow Molar flow Molar Partial pressure Composition (lb/hr) (kmol/hr) fraction (psia) Hydrogen 29.7 6.8 0.46 88.0 Nitrogen 92.7 1.5 0.10 19.6 Ethane 66.7 1.0 0.07 13.2 Ethylene 251.5 4.1 0.28 53.2 I-Butane 165.4 1.3 0.09 16.9 Total 606 14.6 1.00 191.0 Solvent stream 122 comprising the ionic liquid solvent is fed to the top of the separator 110 . The pressure of the separator 110 is about 186 psia, and the temperature is about 30° C. The ionic liquid solvent is [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag, and the concentration of Ag(I) in the ionic liquid solvent is about 1.8 N. In the separator 110 , gaseous ethane, ethylene and isobutane rise through the ionic liquid solvent, and ethylene is absorbed (via complexing as described herein) into the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The ethylene which is complexed with the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag exits the separator 110 and flows to a regenerator 120 via captured stream 113 . Ethylene desorbs from the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag in the regenerator 120 , where the pressure is 16 psia and the temperature is about 149° C., so as to regenerate the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The regenerated [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag is recycled back to the separator 110 via solvent stream 122 . Isobutane which is not absorbed in the separator 110 flows via stream 112 to a membrane unit 130 . Isobutane is recovered as permeate of an isobutane-selective membrane 135 in the membrane unit 130 . Isobutane flows from the membrane unit 130 in stream 132 . Ethane and any remaining gas are recovered in the retentate of the membrane via stream 131 . For a solvent stream 122 flow rate of about 6,000 lb/hr, and a mass flow ratio of liquid to gas of about 10, ethylene recovery is about 92.6% by weight of ethylene in the process stream 111 , the purity of the recovered ethylene is about 98.3% by mole of ethylene in the recovered stream 121 , and isobutane recovery is as high as about 98% by weight of isobutane in the process stream 111 . Example 3 demonstrates utilization of a membrane unit 130 to recover the second gaseous component (i.e., isobutane) can provide for a smaller solvent circulation system. When compared with Examples 1 and 2, the mass flow ratio of ionic liquid solvent in Example 3 is about 10, while the mass flow ratio for Example 1 is about 200 and the mass flow ratio of Example 2 is about 15. In cases where circulation capacities to achieve mass flow ratios such as those in Examples 1 and 2 are not available (e.g., such capacity is cost-prohibitive, retrofitting for such a capacity is not possible, a footprint for such a capacity is not available, etc.), Example 3 provides for 92.6% recovery of ethylene in the separator 110 using a mass flow ratio of 10 and up to 98% recovery of isobutane in the membrane unit 130 . Prophetic Example 1 Prophetic Example 1 utilizes the system 100 of FIG. 1 . Process stream 111 of FIG. 1 comprising natural gas, CO 2 and H 2 S is fed to the bottom of the separator 110 , and solvent stream 122 comprising the ionic liquid solvent is fed to the top of the separator 110 . The mass flow ratio of liquid to gas can be about 10 to about 100. The pressure of the separator 110 is about 100 psia to about 250 psia, and the temperature is about 5° C. to about 50° C. The ionic liquid solvent is [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag, and the concentration of Ag(I) in the ionic liquid solvent can be 0 N to about 1.8 N. In the separator 110 , gaseous natural gas, CO 2 , and H 2 S rise through the ionic liquid solvent, and CO 2 and H 2 S are captured (e.g., physisorb) into the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The CO 2 and H 2 S which are captured (e.g., physically dissolved) in the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag exits from the separator 110 and flows to a regenerator 120 via captured stream 113 . CO 2 and H 2 S liberate (e.g., become insoluble) from the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag in the regenerator 120 so as to regenerate the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The regenerator 120 operates at a temperature from about 60° C. to about 450° C., and a pressure greater than or equal to about 14.7 psia where the pressure is less than about 20 psia less than the pressure of the separator 110 . The regenerated [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag is recycled back to the separator 110 via solvent stream 122 . The CO 2 and H 2 S can be recovered in recovered stream 121 . The CO 2 recovery can be greater than 50% by weight of CO 2 in the process stream 111 or by mole of CO 2 in the process stream 111 , and the H 2 S recovery can be greater than 50% by weight of H 2 S in the process stream 111 or by mole H 2 S in the process stream 111 . Purity of CO 2 in the recovered stream 121 can be greater than about 90% by mole of CO 2 in the recovered stream 121 . Purity of H 2 S in the recovered stream 121 can be greater than about 90% by mole of H 2 S in the recovered stream 121 . Prophetic Example 1 demonstrates CO 2 and H 2 S may be removed from natural gas to provide a natural gas stream having reduced amounts of CO 2 and H 2 S. Prophetic Example 2 Prophetic Example 2 utilizes the system 100 of FIG. 1 . Process stream 111 of FIG. 1 comprising syngas and CO 2 is fed to the bottom of the separator 110 , and solvent stream 122 comprising the ionic liquid solvent is fed to the top of the separator 110 . The mass flow ratio of liquid to gas can be about 10 to about 100. The pressure of the separator 110 is about 100 psia to about 250 psia, and the temperature is about 5° C. to about 50° C. The ionic liquid solvent is [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag, and the concentration of Ag(I) in the ionic liquid solvent can be 0 N to about 1.8 N. In the separator 110 , gaseous syngas and CO 2 rise through the ionic liquid solvent, and CO 2 is captured into the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The CO 2 which is captured (e.g., physically dissolves) in the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag exits from the separator 110 and flows to a regenerator 120 via captured stream 113 . CO 2 liberates (e.g., becomes insoluble) from the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag in the regenerator 120 so as to regenerate the [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag. The regenerator 120 operates at a temperature from about 60° C. to about 450° C., and a pressure greater than about 14.7 psia and wherein the pressure is less than about 20 psia less than the pressure of the separator 110 . The regenerated [emim][Tf 2 N]—Ag is recycled back to the separator 110 via solvent stream 122 . The CO 2 can be recovered in recovered stream 121 . The CO 2 recovery can be greater than 50% by weight of CO 2 in the process stream 111 or by mole of CO 2 in the process stream 111 . Purity of CO 2 in the recovered stream 121 can be greater than about 90% by mole of CO 2 in the recovered stream 121 .
