Sphere of influence: We report the valorization of two natural biopolymers as highly efficient, reversible CO2 adsorbents. Pyrolysis leads to graphitic carbons that adsorb amounts of CO2 at 0 °C and atmospheric pressure double that of the currently best CO2 adsorbents (per mass unit). In addition, the materials also exhibit higher adsorption capacity per volume unit, a parameter that is more relevant for industrial applications where the limiting factor is the volume of adsorption towers.
