Research paper: Direct air capture by membranes
Research paper by Prof. Shigenori Fujikawa and Prof. Roman Selyanchyn
Reducing the rates of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere will not suppress global warming, and it is necessary to capture the CO2 that has been cumulatively emitted into the atmosphere as well. For this reason, negative CO2 emission technology, a technology to capture CO2 from the atmosphere, is considered essential. In this paper, we summarized our recent developments in membrane technology that brought the possibility of membrane-based gas separation to be considered as a new approach to direct air capture of CO2 (DAC). In this article, the potential of membrane technologies as DAC is discussed and future technology target is proposed.
