Cost Efficient Carbon Capture System
The need for technology that can capture, remove and repurpose carbon dioxide grows stronger with every CO2 molecule that reaches the Earth’s atmosphere. To meet that need, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have cleared a new milestone in their efforts to make carbon capture more affordable and widespread.
They have created a new system that efficiently captures CO2 — the least costly to date — and converts it into one of the world’s most widely used chemicals, methanol. It holds many uses as a fuel, solvent, and an important ingredient in plastics, paint, construction materials and car parts. The studies were published in the journal Chemical Sciences.
