Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) is the most potent greenhouse gas, with a global warming potential 23,500 times that of CO2 and an estimated atmospheric lifetime of 800 – 3,200 years. Over 80% of SF6 produced is used by electricity grid networks, as an insulator for electrical switchgear. CageCapture™ SF6 can reversibly capture SF6 to tackle leaks from pipework in industrial settings.
Formaldehyde (HCHO) is a major carcinogen, which is a particular problem in rapidly-growing economies such as China. Conventional sorbents do not capture formaldehyde effectively and physical adsorption can be reversible. We have designed an organic cage molecule that captures formaldehyde and traps it, as in a prison. The cage material is solution processable and can be incorporated into pre-existing filter technologies to give a unique added benefit.
Removal of Toxic Formaldehyde Gas Streams using CageCaptureTM Technology
Formaldehyde is a toxic gas that is often found in homes and indoor environments such as: offices, classrooms, laboratories, and hospitals. A 1997 report by the U.S. Consumer Product safety commission discovered that whilst formaldehyde is a normal part of air makeup sometimes it is found in elevated levels that are a risk to human health.
