Highly microporous activated carbon cloth as a versatile material for CH4 adsorption and CO2 storage at low pressure.
The efficient storage of energy combined with a minimum carbon footprint is still considered one of the major challenges facing the global pursuit of a transition toward progressive, sustainable, eco-friendly societies. For this reason, a sustainable and scalable method is presented in this study for the preparation of an ultra-microporous (average pore size around 0.6 nm) activated carbon cloth (ACC) with a large specific area (> 2024 m2/g) and pore volume (~ 1.5 cm3/g) by combining a chemical impregnation of low-cost cellulose-based polymeric fabric. The resultant ACC can store 2.0 mmol/g at 1 bar, 7.7 mmol/ g at 20 bar of CH4 at 25°C, which is much higher than any value reported to date for activated carbon cloths. In addition, it can store 2.0 mmol/g, 4.2 mmol/g and 13.4 mmol/g at 0.25 bar, 1 bar and 40 bar respectively, at 25°C
