A new technology for capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

Texas: An American start-up company is working on a train that can extract carbon dioxide from the air while in motion.

A company called CO2rail is working with engineers from the University of Sheffield and the University of Toronto to create air ducts that can draw in air while the train is moving. Can be converted to liquid form and stored in cans.

Researchers believe it is a more cost-effective technology than other direct-air carbon distillation technologies because the carbon distillation canisters can be installed in existing rail cars.

According to the researchers, each box can emit 3000 tons of carbon dioxide per year. While this technology will take up less space than stationary facilities and help countries meet their net zero emissions goals.

Professor Peter Stiring, from the University of Sheffield and co-author of the study, said direct removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere was urgently needed to reduce the worst effects of climate change.

The researchers published the designs of these rail boxes in a paper in the journal Joule.
