New asphalt captures its own weight in CO2

January 8th, 2015

Rice scientists turn asphalt into an effective, environmentally friendly carbon-capture material for use at natural gas wellheads. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, is quoted. Postdoctoral associate Almaz Jalilov and graduate students Gedeng Ruan, Chih-Chau Hwang, Desmond Schipper, Yilun Li, Huilong Fei and Errol Samuel and lab assistant Josiah Tour are mentioned.
