What is the News?
Indian Scientists have discovered a strategy to synthesize novel solid adsorbents for CO2 capture and utilization.
What is Carbon Capture and Utilization(CCU)?
Carbon Capture and Utilization(CCU) is the process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) to be recycled for further usage.
CCU is a growing field of research focusing on reducing CO2 emissions. But CCU still can’t provide an economically viable and complete CO2 capture and utilization solution.
What have the researchers developed?
Researchers have discovered special types of nano-particles or micro-particles like Covalent Organic Frameworks(COF) coated zeolite.
This particle can be an excellent candidate for CO2 storage in the industry due to its high surface area and increased chemical stability. Moreover, this particle has higher CO2 uptake even after treatment with weak acids.
