Polymer Aerogel CO2 Capture Adsorbents
Cost-Effective Direct Air Capture
PARC is developing tunable aerogel adsorbents that can capture CO2 with low adsorbent cost, minimal cycling energy, and long adsorbent lifetimes. These adsorbents are made via a polymer aerogel synthesis technology developed at PARC that uses controlled radical polymerization to achieve unprecedented control over the polymer aerogel pore network. Tuning the adsorbent pore structure enables greater access of the active sites to CO2 and improved overall gas transport, boosting performance.
Our work is centered around a series of Focus Areas that we believe are the future of science and technology.
We’re continually developing new technologies, many of which are available for Commercialization.
PARC scientists and staffers are active members and contributors to the science and technology communities.
