Cactus Communications writes for Phys on a new carbon capture technology.
- A team of researchers have potentially found a way to reduce plastic pollution and CO2 emissions simultaneously.
- The team converted polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the plastic that is used to make water bottles, into porous carbon materials that are used in carbon capture technology.
- The researchers determined that old PET bottles are effective at capturing CO2, but questions remain on whether or not the process can be scaled up to an industrial level.
