Mosaic Materials is dedicated to reducing the cost and environmental impact of fossil fuels through the application of proprietary, highly efficient gas separation technologies. We utilize porous solids known as metal-organic frameworks to selectively remove impurities such as CO2 from gas mixtures in an array of applications from submarines to power plants.
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of porous solids suitable for gas separations owing to their large internal surface areas and chemical tunability. We have developed an adsorbent material that selectively captures CO2 with higher efficiency and lower costs.
Unique performance characteristics are achieved through a proprietary “cooperative binding” process first developed by the cofounders of Mosaic Materials at UC Berkeley. This one-of-a-kind mechanism allows our materials to reversibly adsorb large quantities of CO2 more efficiently than other adsorbents.
The cooperative-binding technology allows the CO2-loaded materials to be regenerated using only moderate temperature or pressure changes, substantially increasing energy efficiency and decreasing costs.
Our materials have the potential to substantially improve breathing air quality within confined spaces such as submarines and space missions, to substantially reduce the energy required to sweeten natural gas, and to drastically reduce the cost of capturing CO2 from power plants and other industrial sources.
