Researchers tout low-cost electrolysis-based carbon-capture technology

05/30/2013 | (free content)

Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a method of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through the use of saline water electrolysis. "It is much less energy-intensive and much less costly than some of the other air capture ideas that have been proposed," said Greg Rau, the project's lead researcher. "The process doesn't require high temperatures or exotic chemicals," Rau added.
