Advances in carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) capture technologies are emerging rapidly as the need for climate solutions grows. Existing solutions for capturing CO 2 are proving insufficient and are prompting efforts to discover and demonstrate new technologies that are capable of economically concentrating CO 2 from both flue gases and the atmosphere. Traditional methods of carbon capture use regenerable base solutions or materials that require considerable energy to release the captured CO 2 . New solid adsorbents, such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), offer the ability to tailor the structure and bonding of CO 2 and thus reduce energy consumption during desorption. Also being investigated are dual function materials that facilitate the simultaneous capture and conversion of CO 2 , potentially saving processing steps and further improving the economics.
