Post-doctoral scientist Neil Williams and his team discover an entirely new chemical mechanism for CO2 sequestration using household humidifiers and hotdog cookers.
Check out this new technology that has the potential to save our environment and solve our energy problems. An artificial leaf removes excess carbon from the air, and researchers can then use that carbon to make gasoline.
The same chemicals we use in shampoo and conditioner could capture CO2 from power plant smokestacks and help limit climate change.
