Scientists Develop Highly Effective, Low-Toxic Carbon-Trapping “Sponges”

Scientists Develop Highly Effective, Low-Toxic Carbon-Trapping “Sponges”

Materials scientists at Cornell University have developed highly effective “sponges” that can trap carbon and help cut down on greenhouse gases. Carbon capture is gaining momentum in the world’s fight against global warming. Carbon capture involves trapping carbon dioxide chemically before it gets released to the atmosphere. However, most methods are inefficient, corrosive and toxic. [More]
