How to capture and use atmospheric CO₂

08-Nov-2019

Carbon dioxide (CO₂), the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming, can also be used as a raw material, for example for the production of chemicals, building materials, novel fuels, or even as fertilizer in algae farming, i.e. input for future food production. CO₂ can also be bound to ...
