Reducing Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Through Direct Air Capture – Dr Radu Custelcean, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Feb 22, 2021 | engineering and tech, physical sciences

About this episode

Climate change is mostly the result of elevated carbon dioxide emissions. Over the past two decades, research groups have been searching for new technologies that capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as an effective way of reversing climate change. Dr Radu Custelcean and his colleagues at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US specialise in this endeavour. The team is developing novel materials and methods that filter carbon dioxide out of the air in an energy-efficient manner.
