Nanomaterial could help reduce carbon emissions

Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed a new nanomaterial that could reduce the carbon footprint of coal-fired power stations.

Publishing their findings in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, the researchers said this new nanomaterial could efficiently separate carbon dioxide from nitrogen in waste released from burning coal.

This would allow coal plants to store carbon dioxide instead of let it get released into the atmosphere.
