European nanotechnology project to capture CO2 from powerplants

The emission of CO2 is a present threat for the global climate. Storage of the greenhouse gas in empty gas fields and aquifers could be a solution. To store CO2 underground it should be captured first. Nanostructured membranes have the potential of doing that. The NANOGLOWA nanotechnology project wants to turn this potential into reality.
