Rice U. refines filters for greener natural gasRice U. refines filters for greener natural gas
Study defines best materials for carbon capture, methane selectivity
Natural gas producers want to draw all the methane they can from a well while sequestering as much carbon dioxide as possible, and could use filters that optimize either carbon capture or methane flow. No single filter will do both, but thanks to Rice University scientists, they now know how to fine-tune sorbents for their needs. (March 23, 2017)
