Gas storage in renewable bioclathrates

Author affiliations


Methane and carbon dioxide can be stored in ‘bioclathrate’ form—that is, as a clathrate supported in a biological structure—by using plants or fungi to greatly accelerate clathrate formation kinetics, thus avoiding the use of energy-intensive mixing technologies or petrochemically derived materials.
