Scientists accidentally turn pollution into renewable energy

Posted on Wednesday, October 19th, 2016 by

Scientists have accidentally discovered a way to reverse the combustion process, turning carbon dioxide back into a fuel. Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US used complex nanotechnology techniques to turn the dissolved gas into ethanol. Because the materials used are relatively cheap, they believe the process could be used in industrial […]

This Startup Turns CO2 Into A Sustainable Replacement For Palm Oil

Posted on Tuesday, August 9th, 2016 by

As palm oil production grows—production doubled in the 2000s, and will likely double again this decade—the problems that go along with cultivating it are also growing. As plantations replace rainforests, the industry has put the Sumatran orangutan on the critically endangered list. In 2015, burning rainforests in Indonesia released more climate pollution, day by day, […]

Dutch researchers grow carbon-hungry plants to suck up pollution

Posted on Friday, July 29th, 2016 by

Air pollution is a problem most cities face, and plants can be incredibly helpful. But what if there was a super plant even better at sucking up pollution? While some types of ivy and grass already reduce particle pollution and nitrogen dioxide by around 60 and 40 percent respectively, one type of honeysuckle plant may […]

Got tons of CO2? Get more giant trees.

Posted on Friday, July 22nd, 2016 by

If you think about it, giant sequoias are the Dwayne Johnsons of the tree world. They’re California natives. They’re pretty buff, growing up to 300 feet tall and 30 feet wide. And they’re resilient as hell, swatting droughts and diseases off their hefty shoulders. And Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, a Michigan-based non-profit, is working on cloning […]

CO2 turned into stone in Iceland in climate change breakthrough

Posted on Thursday, June 9th, 2016 by

Carbon dioxide has been pumped underground and turned rapidly into stone, demonstrating a radical new way to tackle climate change. The unique project promises a cheaper and more secure way of burying CO2 from fossil fuel burning underground, where it cannot warm the planet. Such carbon capture and storage (CCS) is thought to be essential […]
