Zero-emission fuel: Tackling storage issues of hydrogen

By | Adsorption, Gas Storage | No Comments

Climate change issues and environmental protection creates the need to switch to cleaner source of energy. The main drivers of global greenhouse emissions are the transportation sector, generation of heat and electricity and powering our buildings (over 40% in total). Cutting down the global energy consumption from these sectors just by few percentage points may reduce emission of several megatons of greenhouse gas. But what if we use a fuel source that has zero emission while still keeping up with the continuously growing demand? Read More

Water for the world – water desalination alternatives

By | Adsorption, Filtration, Water purification / desalination | No Comments
The demand for potable water increases at twice the speed of the population growth on earth. Although two thirds our ‘blue planet’ are covered by water, less than 3% of it is available as drinking water. The challenge of growing water demand at given resources can be met with new alternatives to commonly used solutions in the future. Read More

Global temperature has been on the rise since the birth of the modern industrial revolution after World War II. The subsequent effects have currently led to over 400 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. Metal-organic frameworks offer a capturing and sequestration alternative to commonly used materials that can reduce free CO2 and other green house gases in the atmosphere. Read More

How MOFs adsorb water from dry air

Water supply is a critical factor in arid areas such as Africa, the Middle East and Australia. Conventional technologies rely on either sea/brackish water or condensation. However, these are very energy-consuming and rather inefficient. To secure the water supply in an efficient and sustainable way for communities in remote desert areas, new technologies are needed.
