    Default Australian Scientists Achieve Breakthrough With Renewably Powered Carbon Capture

    Australian scientists have achieved a new breakthrough in carbon capture and storage. Their novel electrochemical process can store carbon dioxide in water with the power of solar or wind, while also producing by-products such as green hydrogen and calcium carbonate – perhaps the key to decarbonizing the cement industry.


    Researchers from the Queensland University of Technology have made a remarkable breakthrough with the development of an electrochemical process in which carbon dioxide is captured from the air and stored in water as a non-toxic calcium carbonate (chalk) in a renewably powered process that could also produce green hydrogen and decarbonize the cement industry.

    I get it, it would mostly benefited the cement industry, but I what I don't get is how exactly. (Not a science buff)

    The cement is a bonus - the environment is the biggest winner. Not only does it remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, it turns it into a useful product. This project has so many beneficial aspects it's a win/win all round. I'm no science buff either, but I find this quite exciting.
