Turning CO2 Emissions into Fuel and More | Black History Today



here we have a scientist named etosha cave we'll get back to her in just a second but first imagine that carbon dioxide you know the same co2 found in your breath factory emissions or even your car muffler could be converted into fuel or essentially anything you can create from petroleum today now back to meet Sasha she along with her team at opus 12 are doing just that through funding and support from the National Science Foundation currently they have created 16 carbon-based compounds from co2 and they're shipping a whole new light on how we see well use carbon dioxide the importance of this product would be that we can create a revenue stream out of carbon dioxide so instead of throwing it away and emitting into the air a company could do something with it and actually create a new revenue stream out of waste co2 we can put the co2 conversion power of about 37,000 trees into something the size of a checked-in suitcase it wasn't an unfortunate event close to home this party Tasha's interest in clean technology growing up in a neighborhood that was adjacent to oil and gas waste site it was eventually found to be linked to higher rates of rare diseases and cancers seeing this as a teenager really got me thinking about you know is there different ways we can deal with waste can we have cleaner forms of electricity and I kind of think iron technology we could certainly make an impact hope slowdown the global warming that's happening this Black History Month the National Science Foundation proudly recognizes etosha cave one of many groundbreaking scientists for making tomorrow's history today
