Carbon sink absorbs carbon dioxide to produce clean energy
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Spotted: Researchers, lead by Changmin Kim at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), and from Georgia Tech have developed a new way of cleaning the atmosphere. The system works largely like a huge liquid battery. It absorbs carbon dioxide to produce electricity and useable hydrogen fuel. Using electrodes to extract the carbon dioxide, it results in 50 percent carbon dioxide conversion efficiency. The Hybrid System can reportedly run for more than 1,000 hours, removing 150 tons of carbon dioxide from the environment each year. The team originally published their research in November 2018. Takeaway: This system could simultaneously reduce our carbon emissions by…
