Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last decade, the amount of research effort spent on CO2 Capture and Utilization (CCUS) has tremendously increased. Several national and international initiatives have aimed at increasing the efficiency of both the capture process and the conversion process. Often, the utilization of CO2 is linked to the use of renewable energy (especially in the form of hydrogen). This Special Issue on “Advances in CO2 Capture and Conversion” aims to cover recent advances in the development and application of CO2 capture and conversion processes from a chemical reaction engineering point of view, and also address the main challenges that need to be overcome in order to bring this technology to the market. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • techno-economic analysis of CCUS processes and roadmaps for commercialization;
  • experimental demonstration of novel catalytic reactors for chemical production;
  • novel capture processes, including DAC;
  • modeling of capture and conversion processes; and
  • CO2 reaction mechanisms.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Carbon sequestration via the carbon capture and storage (CCS) method is one of the most useful methods of lowering CO2 emissions in the atmosphere. Ethylenediamine (EDA)- and triethylenetetramine (TETA)-modified mesoporous carbon (MC) has been successfully prepared as a CO2 storage material. The effect of various concentrations of EDA or TETA added to MC, as well as activated carbon (AC), on their CO2 adsorption capacity were investigated using high-purity CO2 as a feed and a titration method to quantitatively measure the amount of adsorbed CO2. The results showed that within 60 min adsorption time, MCEDA49 gave the highest CO2 capacity adsorption (19.68 mmol/g), followed by MC-TETA30 (11.241 mol/g). The improvement of CO2 adsorption capacity at low TETA loadings proved that the four amine functional groups in TETA gave an advantage to CO2 adsorption. TETA-functionalized MC has the potential to be used as a CO2 storage material at a low concentration. Therefore, it is relatively benign and friendly to the environment. Full article
