I1.09 - MicroVaSCular Materials for Carbon Release Using Waste Heat 
April 22, 2014   11:45am - 12:00pm

Work into synthesizing microvascular materials has recently taken a step forward in the form of a new synthetic process VaSC (Vaporization of a Sacrificial Component) that enables the formation of 3D microstructures that are meters in length. We report on our recent advances in using VaSC to create three-dimensional gas exchange units modeled on the design of avian lungs and vascular systems for heat distribution. We are focused on mass transfer applications for the capture and release of CO2. In particular, we will report on recent research into creating ultra-high surface area micro-structures and the use of two phase flow systems to release gas from capture solutions using radiant waste heat. We will discuss at length the design, execution and testing of a compact, portable system for the capture of CO2 from point sources and the use of a second system for the use of heat radiating from emission producing devices.
