3D printed CAPTACO2 module

23 December 2019

While membrane development is going on in the laboratory testing new materials and compositions, other elements such as fluid dynamics, usability and dimensional constraints need to be adressed thinking in the final CO2 capturing device. For this purpose the team Read More …

DIPA membrane testing

4 November 2019

DIPA stands for diisopropylamine, a secondary amine which industry uses to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from combustion and flue gases. Adding DIPA to a standard polysulfone membrane may improve its CO2 capturing performance, and this is our next step in Read More …

CAPTACO2 – new testing, the team grows

22 September 2019

The results obtained with the bigger module (https://blog.greennova.org/en/projects/captaco2-testing-with-the-big-module-starts/) have forced the Eurecat team to start another type of tests. The motive: the system has a good carbon dioxide capturing efficiency, but it drops after some time. This could happen because Read More …

CAPTACO2 – Scalability testing starts

3 June 2019

With the objective to check the scalability of the results of Doctor Adrianna Nogalska’s thesis (which is the base to develop the project as explained previously on https://blog.greennova.org/en/projects/captaco2-project-description/), testing of a bigger module has started at Eurecat labs in Tarragona. Read More …

CAPTACO2 – Project description

20 May 2019

As the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (ipcc.ch) states, climate change is caused by the increase of atmospheric greenhouse gases. This increase has taken place during the last 200 years and is the consequence of the activities we develop as Read More …
