  5. Efficient CO2 and H2O Removal with Novel Adsorbentsfor Life Support Applications on Mars

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T6

    Very low CO2 concentrations that accumulate quickly from human respiration can have dramatic health effects, and thus in NASA’s history many technical removal strategies for CO2 from a confined atmosphere have been suggested and explored. A CO2 removal system that functions in a is a new area of research, as the primary CO2 removal component in the state-of-the-art system doesn’t have the adso ...

  6. A Supported Liquid Membrane System for Steady State CO2 Control in a Spacecraft Cabin

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: T6

    Reducing the allowable concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in spacecraft is a critical need for NASA. The system now used on the International Space Station (ISS) is the carbon dioxide removal assembly (CDRA). While it has performed well on the ISS, managers have concluded that using the device to reach the new ppCO2 limit of 2.0 mm Hg is not practical and a new method is needed.In this projec ...
