Could an easily available substance like baking soda clean the air of CO2 emissions? The answers seems to be yes as a new emissions-scrubbing system has been developed by the researchers at Harvard University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory which the researchers claim is less power hungry and makes use of components which are more environment friendly.

The researchers have discovered a way to use ordinary baking soda to capture carbon dioxide. Core-shell microcapsules are used to make the new carbon capture media. These microcapsules are highly permeable polymer shell containing a sodium carbonate solution, which reacts with and absorbs carbon dio...
