Carbon dioxide is currently one of the most abundant greenhouse gases contributing to the issues of global warming and climate change. While researchers have been relatively successful at trapping environmentally-harmful carbon emission from the atmosphere, the problem of storing it safely has continued to plague today’s greatest scientific minds.
As part of a new study, a team has come up with an innovative, new way of sequestering the carbonabsorbed from the air. Recently published in the Environmental Science & Technology Letters journal, the research reveals that injecting CO2 into basalt in turn causes it to transform into solid rock within just two years.
