Energy Efficiency & Carbon Neutralization
Technology evaluations in regards to existing and emerging energy efficient and carbon neutralizing innovations.
Our efforts in analysis aim to conclude how we can internationally reach a target output of <1 metric ton of CO2 per person, per year with minimum effort and financial investment.
As often as possible we will be reviewing new innovations as they come to our attention and encourage you to add your opinion and scrutiny to these posts. We will do our part to ensure these technologies are of a reputable nature and accompanying information is scientifically accurate.
Up and coming articles
An up and coming article currently under further investigation is this; A new ionic liquid is capable of facilitating the conversion of solar energy into hydrocarbons. This is a fantastic idea which at the point of availability should entail some sort of monitoring and reward system. However at first glance this advance seems to be limited to larger scale operations which I understand have been available for a while now with little or no implementation and adoption.
What the article will cover is an ongoing investigation into smaller, more commercial and hobby scale systems that either convert atmospheric CO2 to hydrocarbons or simply remove the CO2 from the environment separating the carbon and oxygen into a pile of dust with no ongoing costs to promote further community and commercial advancement in the technology. A better suited device for this thread seems to be; Device Uses Solar Energy to Convert Carbon Dioxide into Fuel which looks much more promising.
It seems straightforward and a better use of solar technology, so we'll see what can be found about this.
