CO2 emissions are slowly killing our planet so it’s no surprise that science is pretty dedicated to finding solutions to the problem. The CarbFix project is an innovative way to store CO2 by turning the gas into rock.
CarbFix sounds like a diet plan but it isn’t even close. This is solution to the issue of emissions that are created by manufacturing. Instead of just capturing and storing them, this system turns them back into rock by pumping it back down into the earth. Once there, it reacts with the basaltic rocks where the gas turns to, well, rock.
This isn’t a quick process. Although originally they had predicted it would take many, many years to change, they began to see results within two years. It is still in the research stage but this innovation could mean great things in the fight against global warming which is good for everyone.
