Amine-Functionalized hierarchical Zeolites for carbon dioxide capture


One of the greatest challenges we are facing in the 21st century is our ability to provide sustainable energy sources to meet the demands for quality of life and economic growth. As most of the energy today is provided from fossil fuels, huge amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases are emitted to the atmosphere, with negative effects on the environment. Depletion of fossil fuels and their associated environmental pollution lead scientists to the pursuit of renewable energy sources and clean energy. However, reducing dependency on fossil fuels is a major challenge for most economically advanced countries. To make fossil fuels clean, efficient, reliable and scalable technologies for CO2 capture from large sources should be developed to control CO2 emission in the short-medium term. Although some technologies for carbon capture are available in the market they still suffer from some limitations to be fully implemented at large scale.
