Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have discovered a new way to capture carbon dioxide. This new technology is a powdery substance resembling a cross between sugar and sand, according to scientists. The material, hyperbranched aluminosilica, could be very crucial for the industry as it exhibits four key factors, chief among them is it is inexpensive to produce. The other three factors are that it is easy to make, it can hold a large volume of carbon dioxide, and it can be recycled so that it can capture and release CO2 multiple times. All current research on the material has taken place in a laboratory - the next step would be putting it in place at a power plant.
