The world is facing one of the greatest challenges in the history of mankind: climate change.
Due to the increase in CO2 emissions and a continuing heavy reliance on fossil fuels, CO2 capture technologies need to be implemented into the existing combustion process to meet the European Climate foundation's Net Zero 2050 initiative to mitigate further harm to our environment. And it needs to happen now.
Enter MOFs. Ideally suited for the targeted removal of air pollutants like CO2, these tiny but powerful materials are playing a key role in solving our climate crisis.

MOFs: A tailor-made solution
Metal-Organic Frameworks are a new class of advanced materials that are creating new possibilities for carbon capture. Their unique physicochemical properties and their engineerable structure offer opportunities for unmatchable capacity and selectivity for CO2 removal.
The current state-of-the-art solution for capturing CO2 is the use of amine-based solvents. However, where amine-based systems are reliant on highly energy-intensive heat, MOFs have opened the door for energy-efficient carbon capture. Our Nuada carbon capture technology takes full advantage of this, slashing energy requirements by 80%.
One of the highest CO2 adsorption capacities known to man
Engineerable structures for target CO2 capture
The ability to capture CO2 even in the presence of humidity
A fraction of the energy requirements of the state-of-the-art amine solutions
Metal Organic Frameworks have:
We are applying the power of MOFs to carbon capture – literally vacuuming CO2 from flue gas.
Harnessing the high-capacity, super-selective nature of MOFs, we’ve engineered our very own ultra-energy-efficient carbon capture technology – introducing Nuada.
By overcoming the energy and cost barriers that have long held it back, Nuada will make carbon capture commercially viable, turbocharging our path to Net-Zero.
