Scientists Create New Molecules That Can Absorb Carbon Faster Than Trees

A new discovery could help to turn the tides in the war against greenhouse gases. Scottish scientists have created new molecules which, thanks to their hollow and cage-like structure, can store greenhouse gases. 

World's largest algae growth pond promotes carbon capture

Founded in 2013, Brilliant Planet grew from a tiny experiment on the shores of St. Helena, South Africa, of three square meters to a 30,000-square-meter production facility in Morocco. They are the world’s largest algae growth pond.

World's largest algae growth pond promotes carbon capture

Brilliant Planet harvests algae and uses AI technology to harness the power of this natural resource that could help reverse climate change.

A Membrane That Separates CO2 From Other Gases

Scientists have developed a new type of self-assembling silver membrane that could be used to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions before they have a chance to spread in the atmosphere.

New way to remove carbon dioxide from air

A new way of removing carbon dioxide from a stream of air could provide a significant tool in the battle against climate change. The new system can work on the gas at virtually any concentration level.

Transforming carbon dioxide into industrial fuels

US researchers have developed an improved system to use renewable electricity to reduce carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide.

Company that sucks CO2 from air announces a new plant

Swiss company has announced the opening of a new plant in Italy that will collect carbon dioxide from the air and pair it with hydrogen to make methane fuel that would add little or no CO2 to the atmosphere.

Rapid Way to Make Carbon Dioxide-Storing Mineral Magnesite

Canadian researchers have developed an accelerated way to produce magnesite at room temperature - a mineral which can capture the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.

New battery gobbles up carbon dioxide

A new type of battery developed by researchers at MIT could be made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants.

Major step in cutting carbon capture costs

Canadian company Carbon Engineering has developed new technology that is capable of capturing carbon at a cost of less than $100 per ton, then turning that carbon into a synthetic fuel.

In Texas, US a new power plant could redefine carbon capture

A company called NET Power has begun testing a unique demonstration power plant in Texas, US that burns natural gas but releases no emissions into the atmosphere.

A membrane captures 90% of CO2 in power plant emissions

An inexpensive method follows nature’s lead in our use of a water-based membrane that incorporates natural enzymes to capture 90 percent of carbon dioxide released.

18-year old invents cheaper CO2 capture tech

18-year-old Ethan Novek's carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technology stands out from the rest because it could capture CO2 at about $10 per metric ton – around 85 percent less than the industry standard.

First facility grabs CO₂ from the air and stores it underground

If deployed at scale, the technology behind this could make a big difference in charting a better climate future—capturing CO2 and locking it away underground before it can add to the growing greenhouse effect.

Tropical Forests Now Have a Serious Carbon Footprint Problem

A new study published today finds that less eye-catching human impacts are more harmful than has been assumed, and are actually causing tropical forests to now emit more carbon than they capture—making them a carbon source rather than a carbon sink.
