Microporous polymers for the upgrading of biogas via molecular separation or the catalytic transformation of carbon dioxide to methanol
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Methane and methanol can be used in renewable energy systems to balance
fluctuating power and ensure a supply of renewable fuels and can be
precursors in the synthesis of materials and chemicals. However, the
processes associated with generating or purifying these small ...


Advanced Carbon Materials from Biowaste: Sustainable Pathways to Drive Innovative Green Technologies
01/10/2016 - 30/09/2020

The energy crisis, environmental pollution and global warming are serious problems that are of great concern throughout the world. Around 40% of the world’s energy consumption is dedicated to the production of materials and chemicals. Thus, there is a need to develop high-perf...


Micro- and mesoporous adsorbents for separation of carbon dioxide from flue gas mixtures
01/01/2011 - 31/12/2013
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) can reduce the emissions of CO2 and mitigate global warming. Adsorption technologies have the potential to separate CO2 from N2-rich flue gases, at a much-reduced cost compared with current technologies. The objectives of this projekt are to synth...

Micro- and mesoporous adsorbents for separation of carbon dioxide from gas mixtures
01/01/2008 - 01/01/2011
Low cost separation of carbon dioxide (CO2) is crucial in the carbon capture technology but the established technologies are energy intense (costly). The significant role of CO2 in global warming warrants the development of new technologies that separates CO2 in an efficient and ...
