Sandia National Laboratories and University of New Mexico researchers have designed a series of nanoscopic membranes made of water saturated by an enzyme that empties coal smoke of CO2 more cheaply and efficiently than any known technology. The enzyme the team found to make the biologically inspired membrane is one naturally developed over millions of […]

Research led by The University of Nottingham School of Chemistry has developed a new porous material that has unique carbon dioxide retention properties.  The material’s structure allows selective adsorption of carbon dioxide – while other gases such as nitrogen, methane and hydrogen can pass back through, the carbon dioxide remains trapped in the materials nanopores, […]
