Innovative Carbon Capture Process Explored

Addressing adverse climate change will require pursuing many options. The journal Science is reporting on one option under study. Chemists at George Washington University in Washington D.C. are developing an electrochemical process to pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and convert it into something useful – carbon nanofibers. These nanofibers are similar to materials now used in a number of industries, including electronics, construction and aerospace, according to the lead researcher Stuart Licht. “It’s very exciting, and I think it’s a viable option in providing a scientific and technological solution to decreasing the CO2 in the atmosphere,” he says.
