Engineers develop a new way to remove carbon dioxide from air
  • Stacks of charged electrochemical plates, under low voltage, hold promise to be the most cost-effective way to capture CO2, useful in a variety of applications.
  • The method is precise and flexible, works in any concentration of CO2, and could be used to produce CO2 for soft-drink bottling plants, or even to produce fuel.
  • All other methods require additional thermal, pressure, or chemical inputs to work — this method only needs a source of electricity.
  • Researchers who discovered this method have set up a company, aiming to commercialize the project.
