Technology turns CO2 into solid carbon instantly

Researchers in Australia developed a new decarbonization technology to instantly turn carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into solid carbon.

The new method is based on an experimental carbon capture technique that utilizes heated liquid metal injected with CO2. This kickstarts a chemical reaction, which turns the CO2 gas bubbles into flakes of solid carbon almost instantly.   

The extraordinary speed of the chemical reaction makes the technology commercially viable, where so many alternative approaches have struggled.  This could soon help industries and governments deliver on their carbon-reduction commitments.

What do you think of the technology?  Could this help us achieve carbon neutrality? And, what should we do with all that solid carbon?  Please, leave your comments below.
