Research question

This project aims to explore so-called Liquid-Infused Materials (LIMs) for CO2 capture. These materials consist of a periodic solid scaffold with tens of thousands of perfectly controlled liquid droplets. This experimental project will develop different LIMs and analyse transport and reaction processes between a gas flows and immobilized liquid droplets. 

Sustainability aspects  

It is estimated from the IEA World-energy outlook report 2019 that up to 99.7 percent of CO2 emissions from existing coal-fired power plants can be reduced. The technology for CO2 capture exists, but commercial technology has low reaction efficiency and requires a significant amount of energy for operation. The concrete outcome of this project will be to benchmark the carbon-capture capacity of LIMs with existing techniques. This project can potentially advance material science for carbon capture and for flow continuous heterogeneous catalysis in general.
