Asayama, Shinichiro (2021): The oxymoron of carbon dioxide removal: Escaping carbon lock-in but yet perpetuating a status quo ante?

Asayama, Shinichiro (2021): The oxymoron of carbon dioxide removal: Escaping carbon lock-in but yet perpetuating a status quo ante? In Front. Clim. 3, p. 72. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2021.673515.

"Although both CCS and CDR are criticised for keeping the fossil status quo, there is a crucial difference between them. Unlike CCS, CDR can possibly avoid the risk of reinforced lock-in, given its physical decoupling from fossil fuel use."

Lee, Young Hun; et al. (2021): Controlled Synthesis of Metal–Organic Frameworks in Scalable Open-Porous Contactor for Maximizing Carbon Capture Efficiency

Lee, Young Hun; Kwon, YongSung; Kim, Chaehoon; Hwang, Young-Eun; Choi, Minkee; Park, YouIn et al. (2021): Controlled Synthesis of Metal–Organic Frameworks in Scalable Open-Porous Contactor for Maximizing Carbon Capture Efficiency. In JACS Au. DOI: 10.1021/jacsau.1c00068.

"Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of microporous materials that have been highlighted with fast and selective sorption of gas molecules; however, they are at least partially unstable in the scale-up process. Here, we report a rational shaping of MOFs in a scalable architecture of fiber sorbent."
