NETL Joins Forces with Medical School to Develop CO2 Sorbents
A nanotechnology currently used to prevent infection in medical implants and to prepare microcapsules for drug delivery may also help ease concerns about global warming.
To investigate this possibility, a novel collaboration has been formed linking a medical school and the Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
Medical research may not seem to have much in common with fossil energy research, but it turns out that the medical school's nanotechnology research has potential to be of great value to the NETL as it focuses on ways to use the nation's fossil energy resources without causing harm to the environment.
