High Speed Carbon Dioxide Catcher Heralds New Era In Fight Against Climate Change

Read more about the article High Speed Carbon Dioxide Catcher Heralds New Era In Fight Against Climate Change
Atmospheric air with low concentrations of carbon dioxide is passed through an aqueous solution of IPDA, where the carbon dioxide rapidly reacts to create a solid product. Carbon dioxide is subsequently re-released with mild heating of the product in suspension, for storage or new applications. (Tokyo Metropolitan University/Newsflash)

Researchers at Tokyo Metropolitan University have created what they say is the fastest carbon dioxide catcher ever, possibly heralding a new era in the fight against carbon emissions linked to…
