MOF Technologies to collaborate with UL researchers to develop technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

MOF Technologies will collaborate with University of Limerick to develop Two New Metal Organic Frameworks with outstanding Gas Capture and Storage Capabilities

MOF Technologies has agreed to develop for commercialisation two MOFs from the University of Limerick (UL) designed to be highly selective for carbon capture and storage.

In response to an EU-led initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across European member states, researchers at the University of Limerick (UL) have developed a new class of Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) which have proven to be highly effective for carbon capture and storage.
