Integrated Carbon dioxide capture and utilisation
A dual function material (DFM) with adsorbent and catalytic capability takes advantage of an exothermic chemical transformation of carbon dioxide to drive the endothermic desorption process from adsorbent sites, avoiding temperature or pressure swing steps that are conventionally employed.
c1 and light hydrocarbon catalysis
The changing energy landscape brings the opportunity to utilise natural gas and carbon dioxide to produce traditionally petroleum-derived chemicals. C1 and light alkane valorisation can enable the utilisation of abundant and often wasted carbon building blocks such as stranded natural gas and carbon dioxide emissions.
