Carbon capture and storage provide a way of mitigating carbon dioxide emissions whilst enabling the continued use of fossil fuels during the period of energy transition leading to net zero emissions. This article describes research that is being done in Scotland, UK, at Robert Gordon University, that is pioneering the use of unconventional membranes for direct air carbon capture. The project, run in collaboration with two Canadian companies, aims to deliver a simple, easily deployable, mechanically stable, continuous and sustainable technology to capture carbon dioxide directly from air.
