Decades of combustion of fossil fuels and CO2 emissions have made climate change one of the most serious challenges that humanity has to face today. The development of a strong CCUS chain (for Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage) is a solution to capture carbon dioxide before it is even emitted into the atmosphere and therefore minimize human greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The MOF4AIR project:
The MOF4AIR project is a project financed by the European Commission to develop and demonstrate a new solution to capture more efficiently carbon dioxide from power plants and industries. To do so, MOF4AIR uses carbon dioxide adsorption with innovative porous sorbents called Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) that have shown promising potential for selective removal of carbon dioxide from exhaust gases. However, MOFs have so far not been properly tested in the harsh industrial conditions present in real exhaust gases and at the exposure times needed to be used in real CO2 capture processes. The purpose of the MOF4AIR project is thus to test the performances of MOFs in real industrial operation in order to support the progress of carbon capture and the decarbonization of the industry and power supply through CCUS.
