New chemical sponge has potential to lessen the carbon footprint of oil industry

New chemical sponge has potential to lessen the carbon footprint of oil industry

Description
Scientists from the School of Chemistry have discovered a ground-breaking technique with the potential to dramatically reduce the amount of energy used in the refinement of crude oil. Professor Martin Schröder and Dr Sihai Yang have led a multi-disciplinary team of scientists from Nottingham, ISIS Neutron Facility, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Diamond Light Source, to discover a porous material that works like a chemical sponge to separate a number of important gases from mixtures generated during crude oil refinement.
