ASU group developing cost-effective way to trap power plants' carbon dioxide emissions
Controlled capture and release of carbon dioxide emitted from power plants represents a potential method for reducing the buildup of this greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. However, existing chemical methods for doing this consume large amounts of energy and are not technologically viable. In a recent perspective article in the journal American Chemical Society Energy Letters, ASU professor Dan Buttry and his group in the School of Molecular Sciences describe new electrochemical methods for controllable capture and release of carbon dioxide that have the potential to reduce these energy costs by a factor of two. This timely article was selected for highlighting as an American Chemical Society "Editors Choice" article.
