Ecolattice packed beds, with their large surface area, are pivotal in efficient carbon capture systems, influencing energy needs and capture rates. The UN cites transportation as a major CO2 contributor in the UAE. Meanwhile, domestic cars are becoming more fuel-efficient with hybrid or electric designs. For carbon capture, optimising packed beds is critical. Ecolattice's minimal surface design enhances heat transfer and reduces drag, thus providing a more efficient solution.
