RMIT researchers develop new carbon capture and conversion technology

February 3, 2022 |

In Australia, researchers have developed a smart and super-efficient new way of capturing carbon dioxide and converting it to solid carbon, to help advance the decarbonization of heavy industries.

The carbon dioxide utilization technology from RMIT researchers is designed to be smoothly integrated into existing industrial processes. Decarbonization is an immense technical challenge for heavy industries like cement and steel, which are not only energy-intensive but also directly emit CO2 as part of the production process.

The new technology offers a pathway for instantly converting carbon dioxide as it is produced and locking it permanently in a solid state, keeping CO2 out of the atmosphere. The research is published in the journal Energy & Environmental Science.
