1/3/2018      America  |  NETL Carbon Capture System Using Supersonic Expansion
NETL researchers have patented a cost effective CO2 separation technology. Mainstream CO2 capture technologies use solvents to dissolve CO2 from other constituents in power plant flue gas, such as nitrogen and water vapor. Capturing CO2 prevents the gas from entering the atmosphere, but use of solvents can greatly reduce a plant’s energy efficiency. An alternative approach to separate CO2 is to use mechanical gas separation in which specific components of the gas stream are changed to either a liquid or solid phase, facilitating more effective separation...

Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory (INL) have developed a process for turning captured carbon dioxide into syngas, a mixture made up primarily of hydrogen and carbon monoxide that can be used to make fuels and chemicals. The team has published its results in Green Chemistry, a publication of the Royal Society of Chemistry...

11/8/2017      America  |  Novel Conductive MOF Offers Efficient Way to Store Renewable Energy
November 8, 2017 Scientists have long searched for the next generation of materials that can catalyze a revolution in renewable energy harvesting and storage. One candidate appears to be metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Scientists have already used these very small, flexible, ultra-thin, super-porous crystalline structures to do everything from capturing and converting carbon into fuels to storing hydrogen and other gases. Their biggest drawback has been their lack of conductivity. Now, according to scientists at the University of Southern California (USC), it turns out that MOFs can conduct electricity in the same way metals do. This opens the door for MOFs to one day efficiently store renewable energy at a very large, almost unthinkable scale. "For the first time ever, we have demonstrated a metal-organic framework that exhibits conductivity like that of a metal. The natural porosity of the metal-organic framework makes it ideal for reducing the mass of material, allowing for lighter, more compact devices" said Brent Melot, assistant professor of chemistry at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts & Sciences. "Metallic conductivity in tandem with other catalytic properties would add to its potential for renewable energy production and storage" said Smaranda Marinescu, assistant professor of chemistry at the USC Dornsife College. Their findings are published in a paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. MOFs are so porous that they are well-suited for absorbing and storing gases like hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Their storage is highly concentrated: 1g of MOF provides a surface area equivalent to thousands of square feet in storage. As temperature goes down, metals become more conductive. Conversely, as the temperature goes up, it is semiconductors that become more conductive. In the experiments run by Marinescu's group, they showed that a cobalt-based MOF mimicked the conductivity of both a metal and a semiconductor at different temperatures, demonstrating its greatest conductivity at both very low and very high temperatures. Solar power has not yet been maximized as an energy source. The earth receives more energy from one hour of sunlight than is consumed in one year by the entire planet, but there is currently no way to use this energy because there is no way to conserve all of it. This intermittency is intrinsic to nearly all renewable power sources, making it impossible to harvest and store energy unless the sun is shining or the wind is blowing. If scientists and industries could one day regularly reproduce the capability demonstrated by Marinescu and her team, it would go a long way to reducing intermittency, allowing solar energy to become an enduring and more permanent resource...
