A team of scientists from the Harvard University and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory managed to design what may be the cheapest, faster, and cleaner technology of grabbing carbon dioxide out of the air by far. And its main ingredient is the commonly used baking soda.

Scientists said that currently there are other carbon-capturing technologies out there, but none of them is so cost-effective and clean. The new technology involves small silicon beads stuffed with a baking-soda-based solution.
