Carbon Capture on algorithm based highly efficient three-dimensional ceramic surfaces
2022 (Autumn) Channel: General ideas an needs in the field of additive manufacturing
The potential of additively manufactured algorithm-based structures such as the well-known TPMS triply periodic minimal surfaces is manifold. One highly interesting field of application is chemical engineering. Mathematically optimized structures allow, among other things, maximum mass and energy exchange surfaces in homogeneous fluid paths.
Using the example of recently developed CO2 capture and release materials on ceramic, additively manufactured TPMS surfaces of hierarchical porosity, the great potential for chemical engineering should be demonstrated. Future further fields of application in the field of chemical process technology could be transfer or exchange reactions, catalysis or reaction control.
