Project Summary

This project aims to further develop promising enzyme technologies to bring substantial cost improvements to the capture of CO2 from coal-fired power station flue gas. In particular, it aims to make major impacts in reducing the capital infrastructure cost (by 30-50%) of the absorber, by markedly increasing transfer rates of CO2 from flue gas by employing enzymes. There is also potential to markedly reduce energy costs by evaluating the use of enzymes with brines for CO2 capture.
