Researchers at the University of Texas, Austin have developed a novel plastic membranes that has the capability to capture four times better than the existing technologies in separating out carbon dioxide. The team developed this new natural gas filtering bioplastic which acts like a molecular sponge selectively allowing carbon dioxide to pass throught it. The plastic sponge can handle almost 500 times more fuel than the regular membranes while efficiently separating out carbon dioxide.
