Bipartisan Policy Center. 2020: Investing in Climate Innovation: The Environmental Case for Direct Air Capture of Carbon Dioxide

Bipartisan Policy Center. 2020: "Investing in Climate Innovation: The Environmental Case for Direct Air Capture of Carbon Dioxide." A White Paper by the Bipartisan Policy Center's Direct Air Capture Advisory Council. Washington, D.C.

"This white paper makes the case for federal investment in an emerging technology, known as direct air capture of carbon dioxide, that could play a critical role in reducing climate change risks this century. It was developed
by the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Direct Air Capture Advisory Council, which includes leaders from academia, the private sector, labor, and the NGO community."

McNeil, Liam A.; et al. 2020: “Dendritic Silver Self-Assembly in Molten-Carbonate Membranes for Efficient Carbon Dioxide Capture.”

McNeil, Liam A., Greg A. Mutch, Francesco Iacoviello, Josh J. Bailey, Georgios Triantafyllou, Dragos Neagu, Thomas S. Miller, et al. 2020: “Dendritic Silver Self-Assembly in Molten-Carbonate Membranes for Efficient Carbon Dioxide Capture.” Energy & Environmental Science. https://doi.org/10.1039/c9ee03497h.

‌"Ag-supported, dual-phase, molten-carbonate membranes routinely demonstrate the highest CO2 fluxes in this class of membrane. However, using Ag as a support incurs high cost. Here, the non-equilibrium conditions of permeation were exploited to stimulate the self-assembly of a percolating, dendritic network of Ag from the molten carbonate."
