CO2 from the atmosphere could be used as renewable energy
The large amount of CO2 that has our planet is still a headache for all our scientists seeking ways to remove this substance that damages the atmosphere. There have been many plans that have been put in place to try to solve this problem.
Well, what until now has been a difficulty could now give a 180 degree change and become a possible blessing. And, a group of scientists seems to have found the key to convert the CO2 from the atmosphere in renewable energy.
Confirmed this theory two birds with one stone, as it would get a major source of renewable energy and also get rid the planet of a substance that causes a lot of damage.
The transformation process is simple, the CO2 is absorbed and stored in molten salt. On the other hand the surplus electricity is used and cooled in ice making. Thus, it comes to the production process in which heat is emitted, expanding the CO2 to a supercritical fluid state. At that time loses its gaseous state and becomes a malleable substance.
The problem, the high cost of the process so far
The big problem today is the high price it costs so far this transformation. Sunrotor, as the device is known, is capable of generating up to 100 megawatts.
In addition, it is considering this technology to connect to a solar generation system or a turbine to improve power. Although it is still early to know if this technology can be a global solution, simply to turn around the situation of CO2, and brings hope.
