The world’s first negative emissions plant under the CarbFix Project to turn atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) into stone has begun operations in Hellisheidi, Iceland. It is intended to lock away carbon dioxide by reacting it with basaltic rocks. Work on the project began in 2007. CarbFix Project In it, the CO2 is captured from ambient ..
The world’s first negative emissions plant that turns carbon dioxide (CO2) into stone has begun operations in Hellisheidi, Iceland. In it, the CO2 is captured from ambient air, bound to water, and sent to more than 700 meters underground. There, the CO2 reacts with the basaltic bedrock and forms solid minerals, creating a permanent storage ..

According to study conducted by researchers from University of Southampton, UK, extreme global warming event 56 million years ago was driven by massive carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from volcanoes, during formation of North Atlantic Ocean. They had used combination of new geochemical measurements and novel global climate modelling to show that Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ..
China has launched a 620-kg satellite TanSat into orbit to monitor global carbon dioxide levels to understand climate change. The satellite was put into orbit by Long March-2D rocket from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre located in Gobi Desert. Apart from TanSat satellite, a high-resolution micro-nano satellite and two spectrum micro-nano satellites for agricultural and forestry ..
Remotely Operated Vehicle sent down by scientists of the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) has captured a rare glimpse beneath the Antarctic sea ice through a small hole drilled in the ice. It also recorded the acidity, oxygen, salinity and temperature of the seawater in the area. The footage captured by the robot reveals a productive, ..
