With New Advance, Natural Gas Filtering Technology Moves Closer to Commercial Reality
Journal of Petroleum Technology , 20th Apr 2017
Researchers at Rice University in Houston have advanced their efforts to develop a low cost and relatively simple-to-make filtering material for carbon dioxide separation and capture. Their aim is for this new material to be used at natural gas gathering facilities where it will absorb carbon dioxide from natural gas streams while allowing the methane product to pass through.Click here to read more

"Be tradition" is a film on the key role of CO2 for making future energy production sustainable.Click here to read more
The novel approach of "Be tradition" is the use of visual narrative for "tradition" and text narrative for "sustainability". The goal is for the viewer to experience a link between tradition (in this case the Italian tradition of cooking) and sustainability (in this case the use of renewable energy and CO2 for making fuels).
New filter finding gives pores for thought
Materials Today , 6th Apr 2017
Natural gas producers want to draw all the methane they can from a well while also sequestering as much carbon dioxide as possible. At the moment, they can use filters that optimize either carbon capture or methane flow, but no single filter will do both. Thanks to scientists at Rice University, however, they now know how to fine-tune these sorbents for their needs.Click here to read more
