Carbon Dioxide Capture

Among all greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2) is the highest contributor to global warming due to its huge emission into atmosphere mostly by the use of carbon-based fuels. Developing CO2 capture and storage technologies are well-accepted methods not only to reduce CO2 in atmosphere but also to store it until its further use in industry. In our laboratory, we focus on developing new and cost effective materials for enhanced CO2 adsorption.
