Brief description Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is one of the defining technological challenges in today’s industry and society. Primary sources of CO2 are due to energy generation using fossil fuels as well as key manufacturing activities such cement production and steel making. This proposal is focused on novel approaches to enzyme mediated membrane contactor systems to create robust, high efficiency CO2 capture from post-combustion and other gas emissions and conversion into useful chemical feedstock. Enzyme immobilisation and stabilisation are enhanced using functionalised nanoparticles and nanostructured membranes.
