Hybrid Minerals for Reversible Capture of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

2012
Precourt Institute for Energy

The project goal is to develop a low-cost technique for capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) with the mineral perovskite, or calcium titanium oxide. The researchers propose using copper and other metals to make synthetic hybrid perovskites with electronic properties that enable the controlled capture and release of atmospheric CO2.
