Fermentalg’s zero-electricity lamp is powered by carbon dioxide-absorbing microalgae

French innovator Pierre Calleja has crafted a stunning lamp that actually does the work of 150 to 200 trees, when it comes to cutting down environmentally-harmful carbon dioxide emissions. Designed to illuminate streets and parking garages, this ingenious contraption uses zero electricity, running entirely on the energy produced by bioluminescent green microalgae during photosynthesis. These…

New Technology Converts CO2 Into Usable Power And Chemicals-2

Cornell scientists develop new technology that makes large-scale carbon capture possible

A team of scientists has devised a new technology that turns carbon dioxide into a variety of useful chemical substances, while at the same time producing sizeable amounts of electrical energy. Recently published in Science Advances journal, the current research could help reduce environmentally-harmful CO2. At present, techniques for large-scale carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (or…

Climeworks To Build World's First Direct Air Carbon Capture Plant-2

World’s first direct air capture plant can convert atmospheric CO2 into usable byproducts

Recently, we talked about the world’s first porous liquid that, according to scientists, could potentially be used to capture environmentally-harmful carbon dioxide from fossil fuel-based power plants. The innovators at Switzerland-based Climeworks have come up with an equally-ingenious solution, which entails trapping of atmospheric CO2 for commercial uses. The company has developed a highly-specialized system…

World's First Porous Liquid Could Facilitate Carbon Capture-1

World’s first porous liquid could be used to capture environmentally-harmful carbon dioxide

Over the years, a significant amount of research has been devoted to different types of liquids and liquid states. Few months back, for instance, a group of Finnish scientists predicted a new phase of matter, that of two-dimensional, atomically-thin liquid. Recently, researchers at Queen’s University Belfast, in Ireland, have made an equally important breakthrough -…
