Carbon Capture Using Next-Gen Membranes

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major greenhouse gas produced from burning fossil fuels that contributes to climate change. One way to cut down on CO2 emissions is through a carbon capture, which is a chemical technique that removes CO2 out of emissions, preventing it from entering the atmosphere.

South Korea Expands VOC Controls and Tightens Limits

South Korea’s Ministry of Environmental (MoE) recently revised the country's enforcement rules on volatile organic compounds (VOCs), under the Clean Air Conservation Act.The revisions include:- Expand existing requirements that mandate companies to monitor VOC emissions and record them;- Adding 11 substances to the list of VOCs that must be monitored and collected under the Act;- Imposing a maximum limit of 67% VOC content in paints; and- Impose stricter requirements on crude oil refining facilities, which emit arsenic acids.The ministry believes this implementation will reduce VOC emissions from the oil refining and paint industries by 15%.
