ExxonMobil & Mosaic Partner on MOFs Removing CO2

03 September 2019

Mosaic Materials, a chemical and engineering company, has made significant progress on a unique process that uses Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) to separate carbon dioxide from air or flue gas. The agreement with ExxonMobil, an international oil and gas superpower, will further allow the two companies to evaluate opportunities for industrial uses of the technology in large scale projects.

“New technologies in carbon capture will be critical enablers for us to meet growing energy demands, while reducing emissions,” said Vijay Swarup, Vice President of Research & Development for ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company in a press release.

“Our agreement with Mosaic expands our carbon capture technology research portfolio, which is evaluating multiple pathways, including evaluation of carbonate fuel cells and direct air capture, to reduce costs and enable large-scale deployment. Adding Mosaic’s approach will allow us to build on their work to evaluate the potential for this technology to have a meaningful impact in reducing carbon dioxide emissions,” he continued.
