Gas capture, separation and storage play critical roles in energy utilization efficiency, a key issue required to be addressed in traditional petrochemistry and emerging industries aiming at net-zero CO2 emission. The development of industry and technology has brought higher requirements and challenges to gas capture, separation and storage materials and technologies.
The Belt and Road Initiative proposed by China is a common aspiration of all countries along their routes to achieve sustainable development of the environment, economy, society, and people's livelihood. To mitigate global warming and carbon emissions and reach carbon neutrality, CO2 capture and geological storage, hydrogen production, transport and storage project and hydrocarbon/coal recovery must be realized. The development of nanomaterials with desired combination properties and corresponding methods for target applications, which can minimize the environmental impact by gas capture, separation and storage has been having growing attention over the last decades. Green and eco-friendly techniques focus on the mechanism and technology, which reduce the use of hazardous substances and non-renewable sources. Nanomaterials for gas capture, separation and storage are considered to be energy-efficient, low-cost, renewable, and environmental-friendly for a sustainable future.
This Special Issue shall present the latest research updates related to CO2 capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), petrophysics, geology and other areas. In this Special Issue original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- CO2/CH4/H2 geo-storage;
- Transport in porous media;
- Advanced nanomaterials for gas capture, separation and storage;
- Mechanisms of gas capture, separation and storage;
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
