The Texas A&M Energy Institute and Air to Earth have announced a partnership to develop new materials and methods to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the impacts of anthropogenic climate change.
The collaboration will modify or design new materials, called chemical sorbents, which will be able to be produced at low costs, provide durable performance and efficiently capture carbon dioxide from ambient air.
The focus will be on porous polymer networks (PPNs), which show great promise for the technological feasibility and driving down the costs of DAC. The project aims to eventually lead to an efficient, cost-effective full-scale DAC operation.
The project is a multi-year study. If successful it will be extended into the future for the eventual development of pilot-scale and full-scale demonstrations of the technology.
