A new type of stainless steel canister that has been used in a number of industrial processes
A new canister with a unique coating made from stainless steel is helping to cut CO2 emissions from an industrial process.
The carbon nanotubes are a new type that are better suited to use in carbon-capture and biodegradable processes, according to the team at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
They were developed by the research group.
“These canisters can be easily assembled to fit in a variety of applications, including carbon capture, carbon sequestration and carbon capture and storage,” said John M. Reiss, professor of chemistry at Carnegie-Mellon and director of the Carnegie- Mellon Nanotechnology Center.
“They’re very versatile.
They’re really good for applications like food production or transportation,” said Reiss.
Reiss said the research team is also working on another type of canister made from carbon nanots for industrial applications.
The research was published in the journal Science Advances.
