Microencapsulated CO2 sorbents (MECS) are carbon capture media composed of core-shell microcapsules, which consist of a highly permeable polymer shell and a fluid (made up of sodium carbonate solution) that reacts with and absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2). A team of researchers recently completed the Department of Energy Lab-Corps Pilot Program, an intensive eight-week entrepreneurial boot camp, where they were able to perform customer discovery and market research for the application of this technology for breweries.
