Carbon Recycling International wants to use volcanoes to take waste
carbon dioxide and make it less, well, wasteful. It built a plant that
takes said carbon dioxide and turns into liquid methanol. Methanol is an
incredibly useful fuel, and that, in and of itself, is cool. But what’s
really impressive here is this is the first viable usage of waste
The implications are huge for the company. That’s as simple
as “more dough.” But the implications for the planet are bigger. This
could not only signal an extreme decrease in greenhouse gases, but it
could stimulate the economy in the process.
What’s needed to make
this work is cheap power and cheap carbon dioxide.
