Cheap material from asphalt shows promise for most efficient carbon capture yet

By April Gocha / January 14, 2015

Rice University scientists say they have developed a derivative of asphalt—asphalt-porous carbon (A-PC)—that can soak up 114% of its weight in CO2 and is much cheaper than any other carbon capture alternative available.

Video: Catching carbon dioxide—new material helps contain greenhouse gas release from natural gas wellheads

By April Gocha / June 19, 2014

A new material developed by scientists at Rice University may help ease some of the burdens behind natural gas preparation by replacing current costly and energy-intensive techniques to isolate natural gas from contaminating carbon dioxide gases from natural gas wells.
