Electrochemically-Mediated Carbon Dioxide Capture

T. Alan Hatton with Aly El-Tayeb and Ryan Shaw

Current CO2 capture technology is energy intensive, expensive, and difficult to integrate with existing infrastructure. This project will develop a novel, plug & play and cost-effective electrochemically-controlled process for CO2 capture (Renewal from 2014 grant round).

Watch Ryan present their project at IdeaStream 2016 below.
