Researchers turn carbon emissions into usable energy

Seoul: A team of researchers has developed a system that produces electricity and hydrogen while eliminating carbon dioxide (CO2), which is the main contributor of global warming. The team from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea created a “Hybrid Na-CO2” system that can continuously produce electrical energy and hydrogen through […]

New battery may help cut Co2 emissions

New York: Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new battery made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. While still based on early-stage research and far from commercial deployment, this battery could continuously convert carbon dioxide into a solid mineral carbonate as it discharges, said the study published in the […]

Surging CO2 to make 600mn Indians malnourished by 2050

New York: The soaring levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) due to human activities are making staple crops such as rice and wheat less nutritious, which could result in nearly 600 millions people in India deficient in zinc and protein by 2050, warned a study. The findings, led by researchers from the Harvard University, predicted that […]

Cancer tissue-freezing may help patients cut treatment cost

New York: Researchers have developed a new reusable device which can help women with breast cancer in lower-income countries by using carbon dioxide, a widely available and affordable gas, to power a cancer tissue-freezing probe instead of industry-standard argon. According to the study published in the journal PLOS One, the research team wanted to create […]
