High-Speed Tunnel for Carbon Dioxide

Highly permeable mineral/polymer membrane for CO2 separation.
To keep greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from entering the environment, it must be stored, or even better used as a raw material. The first step in such processes is the efficient separation of CO2 from exhaust leaving power plants and factories. One current trend is to explore using membrane separation processes. In China, a new approach for making novel membranes based on multilayered materials and polymers has now been developed. As the scientists report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, the cavities between the mineral layers serve as selective transport channels for CO2.
