A revolutionary new patent to capture 90% of CO₂ emitted by trucks

News of the 06/01/2020

Researchers from EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) have developed a new process to capture CO₂ directly in the exhaust pipe and transform it into liquid.

This mechanism requires the installation of a 2 meter x 0.9 meter x 1.2m capsule on the vehicle cabin. It recovers the CO₂ in the exhaust, uses the heat given off by the engine to transform it into liquid through various stages.

This liquid CO₂ could then be recovered in petrol stations and used by manufacturers as it can be used as fuel following further processing.
