‘Breakthrough’ carbon capture tech slashes costs


A new modular carbon capture system created by Belfast-based MOF Technologies could ‘revolutionise the world of carbon capture’, according to its developers.

Its Nuada system aims to remove barriers that restrict accelerated investment into the commercialisation of carbon capture technology. 

By utilising an ‘ultra-efficient’ system driven by vacuum pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology combined with a metal-organic framework (MOF)-based filter, energy process costs could be reduced by 80% resulting in a cost of capture reduced to as low as £13 per tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2). 

MOFs work selectively by using bespoke chemistry to target, capture, and remove specific gases such as CO2.
