Exploring ways of enhancing ocean alkalinity for removing atmospheric carbon dioxide

New Delhi, November 5, 2021: Arvind Singh, Associate Professor at the Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, a Swarnajayanti fellow of 2020-21, is examining the role of enhancing ocean alkalinity for removing atmospheric carbon dioxide to tackle global climate change problems. Increasing emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to anthropogenic and other processes is a […]

New non-toxic organic photocatalyst can efficiently capture CO2 and convert it into methane

New Delhi, October 31, 2021: Indian Scientists have designed a cost-effective metal-free catalyst to convert carbon dioxide or CO2 to methane by absorption of visible light. Ongoing research is making a significant effort to reduce CO2 into value-added products, methane (CH4) could be one of the value-added products with significant uses as the cleanest burning […]

Artificial photosynthesis to provide solutions for carbon capture and conversion

New Delhi, March 25, 2021: Scientists have found a method to mimic nature’s own process of reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, namely photosynthesis, to capture excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This artificial photosynthesis (AP) harnesses solar energy and converts the captured carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide (CO), which can be used as a […]
