Spruce Cone Material Could Scrub CO2 Emissions
Spruce cones could yield a material for capturing and storing carbon dioxide emissions that outperforms other solid sorbents, says a new study (ACS Sustainable Chem. Eng., DOI: 10.1021/acssuschemeng.5b01113).
Carbon capture and storage—plucking CO2 molecules out of smokestacks and injecting them underground—is necessary to tame climate change, experts say. But the prohibitive cost of the standard capture process, which uses aqueous . . .
