Black to the Future: Carbon Capture and Storage

Black to the Future: Carbon Capture and Storage

Description:

Coal and oil are nature’s carbon reservoirs – tapped for centuries and burned for energy; from 'black to gas' … carbon dioxide that is. Now there’s keen interest in capturing and storing that carbon dioxide gas, firstly to prevent more of it entering the atmosphere, and secondly to keep it on tap as raw feedstock for various industrial processes. This webinar will look at characterization of functionally useful solids for capture and storage processes based on sorption.

Key insights:

  • Surface area, pore size and pore volume measurements by low pressure gas sorption
  • Different adsorbents and calculations for determining micropore size
  • High pressure CO2 sorption capacity measurements
  • Surface excess versus adsorbed amount

In this webinar, you will learn how gas adsorption is used to determine the geometrical properties of microporous adsorbents currently used for, or with the potential for, carbon capture and storage, and how to accurately determine CO2 storage capacity as a function of elevated pressure under various temperature conditions.
Suitable for scientists and engineers working in research, development and quality assurance.
