Alongside with other mitigation strategies such as alternative resource use, recycling, electrification and efficency increases, Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is a key technology that has the potential to decrease anthropogenic carbon emissions in industrial sectors and to achieve climate change mitigation.

Shifting towards a low-carbon economy requires cost-effective carbon capture solutions to be developed, tested and deployed.

In this regard, Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are a widely studied class of porous adsorbents that offer tremendous potential due to their high versatility (tunable composition and structure), owing to their large CO2 adsorption capacity and high CO2 affinity. 

However, the performances of MOF-based carbon capture technologies have not been fully evaluated in advanced CO2 adsorption system at the time of industrial scale, this is the aim of the MOF4AIR project.

MOF4AIR is a H2020 project gathering 14 partners from 8 countries to develop and demonstrate the performances of MOF-based CO2 capture technologies in power plants and energy intensive industries. MOF4AIR stands for Metal Organic Frameworks for carbon dioxide Adsorption processes in power production and energy Intensive industRies.

Duration: 01/07/2019 – 30/06/2023

Budget: 11.1M€ with 9.9M€ of EU contribution
