Scientists use sunlight and modified sawdust to reversibly capture carbon dioxide

Researchers have found an innovative way to reversibly capture carbon dioxide (CO2) using sunlight and modified sawdust. In a proof-of-concept installation, they used solar energy to successfully drive the capture and release of CO2, with sawdust as the absorbent, creating a more sustainable pathway to CO2 carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.
