This new battery can absorb CO2 from air

Researchers at MIT have developed a new type of battery that’s partly built from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. rather than attempting to convert co2 to specialised chemicals, which is highly challenging, this battery could continuously convert CO2 into solid mineral carbonate, as it discharges.

The Battery

The battery is made from lithium metal, carbon and an electrolyte.

The battery formulation could open up new avenues for tailoring electrochemical carbon dioxide conversion reactions, which may ultimately help reduce emission of the greenhouse gas to the atmosphere, feel researchers.
