Description

This multidisciplinary novel project proposes exploiting biological methodologies for preparation and optimisation of green nanostructured silicas for use as adsorbents for effective CO2 capture (an EPSRC Priority area: Carbon Capture & Storage – CCS). The proposed green method produces superior materials without attendant pollution and high energy usage. This will be the first study utilising bioinspired silicas for CCS – giving the UK the opportunity to be a world leader. Outcomes envisaged include an invention disclosure on preparation of materials for CO2 capture, a 4* publication and two EPSRC proposals.
