New recycling technology could transform CO2 waste into useful chemicals

Instead of only capturing and storing carbon dioxide, new tech could recycle it into something useable. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is believed to be the primary cause behind global warming. One of the methods employed to help control the problem is capturing waste carbon dioxide from manufacturing sites and industrial plants and storing it deep beneath the ground. However, American scientist, Emily Cole, has found a better way to deal with the waste and has developed a recycling technology that can convert waste CO2 into a chemical that can be used…

Researchers in New Jersey make a clean technology breakthrough

Clean technology project taps into the power of photosynthesis Researchers from Princeton University have been working with Liquid Light, a technology startup based in New Jersey, and have made a major breakthrough in fuel cell technology. Through a collaborative effort, the research team has been able to transform a combination of water and carbon dioxide into formic acid using a fuel cell powered by solar energy. The solar power used for this project was provided by Public Service Electric and Gas of New Jersey. Solar powered fuel cell is able…
