Vent door against carbon dioxide

Vent door to fight to save the planet with carbon dioxide

A research group from the University of Melbourne has developed a new method to extract the CO2, which will help reduce the cost of screening and storage of known greenhouse gas. This will ensure a clean future, because carbon dioxide will be compressed and safely conserve or use in the chemical industry.

The principle of the new method is to capture the CO2 molecule with a molecular sieve with a mesh of suitable size, which is to seize and other substances, which required later to conduct additional
