The discovery of new materials with enhanced selectivity or capacity will boost adsorption applications, especially for environmental control. In particular, it was mentioned that metal-organic frameworks (MOF) with different tailored properties may be prepared for desired separations. To promote industrial application of MOF materials, up-scaling and process design still must be completely developed. In this work, we report adsorption equilibrium data of methane and carbon dioxide on Cu-MOF extrudates. The most important properties observed are the high-capacity for CO2 and the small nonlinearity of the isotherms. In this context, this adsorbent can be used for biogas upgrading to produce biomethane and reduce fossil-fuel CO2. © 2008 American Chemical Society.
