Computer model pinpoints prime materials for efficient carbon capture
Date:5/27/2012

al processing units (CPUs), GPUs reduced each structure's calculation, which involves complex quantum chemistry, from 10 days to 2 seconds.

Bhown noted that most people believe that some economic incentives or regulatory frameworks are needed to implement carbon capture, and the EPRI's goal is to help the industry identify the best technologies for doing so. A survey that EPRI conducted recently suggested that developing any new technology would take 10-15 years even with adequate funding.

"The collaboration between different parts of the Department of Energy is a nice illustration of the synergy that can be achieved if researchers working on the most fundamental aspects of carbon capture start to collaborate with their industry counterparts," said Karma Sawyer, DOE program director. "This study shows how engineering and fundamental science can speed-up the process of discovery and implementation of promising materials ready to test in the field."

"The hope is that there is a system set up such that, when someone comes up with a promising material, we can rapidly test it and get it to a readiness level pretty quickly," he said. "We are all excited by this work and look forward to pursuing it further."
