Liquid Metals Can be Used to Convert Carbon Dioxide Back to Coal

Science Innovations

A revolutionary method that uses liquid metals to convert carbon dioxide back to solid coal raises immense possibilities on carbon capture and storage that will help in mitigation of global warming

The new technology was developed by researchers at RMIT University of Australia which uses a liquid-metal electro-catalyst to transform carbon-dioxide in gaseous form to carbon-containing solids at room temperature. Usually carbon capture techniques work at high temperatures consuming more energy thus making it unviable. Converting carbon to liquid form and moving it underground has several drawbacks. However, the latest technology converts it to solid form making it more sustainable.

The carbon obtained in the process is also capable of holding electrical charge and thus could be used in vehicles, researchers.
