New materials & processes for carbon capture and utilization

 

  • A group of scientists from Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad have designed a hybrid material which can absorb greenhouse gas methane and convert it to clean hydrogen.
  • They have simulated a process of capturing carbon dioxide and converted it to high purity hydrogen from non-fuel grade bioethanol. 
  • These scientists have also designed a facility that can test such materials and help further carbon capture research at the institute.
