Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Key ‘step forward’ in cutting cost of removing CO2 from air
A new idea and technology have gotten closer to reality. Extracting carbon dioxide, or CO2, from air sounds like a great solution to cope with global warming. However, it still is too costly to commercialize or mandate to the emitters. Also, what to do with the extracted CO2 is another issue needs to be resolved.
Now, a Canadian company backed by the Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates has come up with practical and economical solutions to remove CO2 from the air. The system sucks air and extracts CO2, and then use the gas by combining with hydrogen derived from water to produce carbon-neutral fuels. With its advanced technology and engineering work along with the generated renewable energy, the entire process of removing CO2 has become substantially more economical than other methods.
However, the world still seems to need legislative supports, incentives, or obligations to make use of any advanced solutions to combat global warming.
Enjoy reading and think if ever humans prioritize the environment over immediate benefits.
