Carbons Emissions Can Be Converted to Useful Products

Technology Inceptions

When the whole world is worried about carbon emisisons and its impact on global warming, some innovative scientists and entrepreneurs are trying to make products such as fuels, polymers, fertilisers, proteins, foams and building blocks from carbon waste,according to BBC. Already there are pioneering initiatives in making CO2 products from carbon emissions in what is known as the Circular Economy. The European Union is prompting industries to adopt the principle of converting waste into raw materials giving a boost to Circular Economy. It is estimated that 37 Gigatonnes of CO2 is emitted globally and out of it seven gigatonnes may be converted into products.
