Dry Cleaning Flue Gas – David Jenkins

David Jenkins’s research keeps carbon dioxide from entering our atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide ranks high on the list of problematic ingredients in flue gas. Wet scrubbers that combine water and organic compounds deliver the most effective method available to date. But you pay a high-energy penalty to regenerate the solution for reuse, David Jenkins says, not to mention their volatile nature and long-term instability. Jenkins and a team led by ORNL’s Radu Custelcean are pursuing a promising alternative approach using scrubbers filled with porous, crystalline powders to attract and hold the CO2 until it is released where it will not enter the atmosphere.
