Subject: honeycombs

I saw a news item about a new technique to draw CO2 from
the atmosphere. It's a chemical process, using amines,
which binds with the molecule, coated on a large structure,
in the shape of a honeycomb.

According to the story, this maximizes surface area.
ok, mathematicians, which function gets optimized by a
honeycomb? What are the constraints and assumptions?
