Capturing Carbon to Generate Negative Emissions
Many climate change initiatives focus on reducing emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. But there is another way: carbon capture technologies endeavor to either stop carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, or remove carbon dioxide that’s already in the atmosphere. These carbon capture activities generate what are known as “negative emissions”. Captured carbon dioxide can be permanently stored deep underground, or it can be used to make new products such as fuels, concrete or soap. Check out this article to learn more.
