Carbon Capture & Conversion

MON, JUL 19, 2021 (34:29)

Even if we could switch today to entirely renewable energy, it will be necessary to remove trillions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. Of the various methods being developed, the carbon capture and conversion system Dr. Khan and his colleagues have devised is of particular interest. This capture and conversion system has a more efficient CO2 capture mechanism and the system can produce useful products.
