Using a volcano to create fuel from poison

• dvice
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 gases.
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.
