Advances in the Chemistry of CO2 Capture Webinar

March 9 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Advances in carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technologies are emerging rapidly as the need for climate solutions grows. Existing solutions for capturing CO2 are proving insufficient and are prompting efforts to discover and demonstrate new technologies that are capable of economically concentrating CO2 from both flue gases and the atmosphere. Traditional methods of carbon capture use regenerable base solutions or materials that require considerable energy to release the captured CO2. New solid adsorbents, such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), offer the ability to tailor the structure and bonding of CO2 and thus reduce energy consumption during desorption. Also being investigated are dual function materials that facilitate the simultaneous capture and conversion of CO2, potentially saving processing steps and further improving the economics. This webinar hosted by the Chemical Sciences Roundtable will review available technologies, explore the chemical and engineering challenges in finding improved capture agents, and describe new technologies under development.
