Scientists turn CO2 into $

Carbon dioxide

A group of South Korean researchers has developed a way to commercially utilize carbon dioxide that may offer a new approach to dealing with climate change. The team from Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) has successfully produced carbonic anhydrase, an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of carbon dioxide and water to bicarbonate and protons that, in turn, could produce substances widely used in industrial products, including plastic, rubber, paint and artificial bones, according to the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs. The research was part of a government-funded project to develop ways to capture and store carbon… read more
