Brendan Bane of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory writes about a new breakthrough in carbon capture.
- The carbon capture solution uses a solvent to capture CO2 from power plant flue gas.
- The captured CO2 is then taken to a reactor where it is converted into methanol, one of the most widely used industrial chemicals on earth.
- From there the methanol can be used to make products like polymers and plastics.
- This system incorporates fewer steps than other carbon capture methods, making it the most affordable option available.
