The article reports on the initiative of scientists at the University of Bath, England to develop a technology based on nanoporous fibres that can trap carbon dioxide, volatile hydrocarbons and other gases. Early trials have shown that the technology uses less than 5% of the energy that is traditionally used to remove gaseous pollutants. The scientists have won the Brian Mercer Award for Innovation from the Royal Society, bagging £185,000 that will be used to help to commercialise the technology.
