The system has shown stability to the point of operating for more than 1,000 hours without damage to electrodes and can be applied to remove CO2
by inducing voluntary chemical reactions.
Meanwhile, the Habshan and Bab complex could capture another 1.9 million tons per year of CO2
(100 million scfd).
'Less than 5 billion tons of CO2
removal could drastically drive up the challenges of climate stabilization,' PIK coauthor Nico Bauer said.
Two possible ways to control CO2
level in the atmosphere are either reducing the use of CO2
emitting sources i-e reduction in the combustion of fossil fuels and other such sources that will release CO2
in to the atmosphere, or we must find new methods and technologies to convert atmospheric waste into other useful products .
Until now, certain basic approaches were proposed to measure the effect of cultivation on CO2
flow in soil.
Some of which include more variable weather, increasing sea ice melt, rising sea levels and ocean waters with more CO2
, also called ocean acidification, which can harm ecosystems and has an (http://www.ibtimes.com/climate-change-news-coral-bleaching-major-threat-2507407) impact on coral reefs .
According to the company, it plans to initially sell CO2
in the restaurant, travel and leisure markets, where there is expansive use of CO2
for beverages, including soda and CO2
enhanced alcoholic beverages.
Effects of this increase in CO2
levels may not be felt immediately, but they will definitely occur later on as CO2
continues to be pumped into the atmosphere at a steady rate.
The company says in industry, there is a need to closely monitor CO2
levels in production process environments and other areas and monitoring CO2
levels in buildings is important as it is a good indicator of air quality.
Its chemical symbol itself indicates each molecule of CO2
contains one atom of carbon fused to two atoms of oxygen.
These variations indicate that CO2
is a bit-part player to much stronger temperature drivers (up and down), such as solar irradiance, ocean currents and cloud cover.
