Offer Description

We are involved in an innovative approach to Integrated Absorption and Mineralization wherein CO2 is captured and mineralized in efficient and environmentally benign conditions. Effective and fast capture by carbonation will be ensured by using aminoacid-based sorbents in the presence of carbonic anhydrase (CA). By tuning the inner active pocket of CA and/or by designing a novel polymeric outer shell for the CA, fast kinetics and low retention in the final inorganic product will be attained.
In the project, we combine computational methodologies such as MD simulations, QM, and QM/MM, in close collaboration with the experimental chemists.
