Abstract

Absent an economic or social cataclysm, there is no plausible way to meet what will be the world’s unavoidable energy demands without utilizing its vast supply of fossil fuels. One important technology being contemplated to mitigate the negative impact of anthropogenic carbon dioxide loading of the atmosphere is Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). CCS will play a vital role in least-cost efforts to limit global warming.1 To achieve future least-cost solutions, second generation or ‘2.0’ carbon capture materials are being developed with government support to improve efficiencies over the current applied solution that is “a very expensive proposition”2 for the installed energy generation base. One 2.0 material, Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs), is “capable of increasing (carbon dioxide) selectivity, improving energy efficiency, and reducing the costs of separation processes”3 in CCS. Such materials can address CCS utilization outcomes in addition to lowering the carbon capture cost. To support further 2.0 carbon capture material development while CCS faces economic challenges, framergy™is leveraging alternative usages for MOFs and other 2.0 materials developed for carbon capture.
