Many scientists have been eager to explore the concept of carbon capture – and especially the concept of transforming greenhouse gases into methanol – for several years. It’s an encouraging concept for sucking carbon emissions out of the atmosphere, slowing global warming and creating handy biofuels in the process, but so far the technologies that would accomplish this transformation haven’t been particularly efficient. But new research by the Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory has developed a copper-based material that could make the process a realistic possibility.
