Title: Method and apparatus for separating gases based on electrically and magnetically enhanced monolithic carbon fiber composite sorbents

Abstract

A method for separating gases or other fluids involves placing a magnetic field on a monolithic carbon fiber composite sorption material to more preferentially attract certain gases or other fluids to the sorption material to which a magnetic field is applied. This technique may be combined with the known "pressure swing adsorption" technique utilizing the same sorption material.
