There are many methods and actions businesses, industries, and consumers are taking to mitigate the generation of carbon emissions, such as recycling, composting, and moving to hydrogen-power vehicles, to name a few. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, the answer to cleaner air, water, and soil vary widely and work differently, but all aim to achieve the same goal. We, as environmental engineers, have the benefit of helping our communities and industries move forward using a variety of new technologies that support the lowering of carbon emissions and are sustainable.
SCS Engineers works behind the scene with many clients and thought we’d share some of their new technologies and processes that are expected to help lower greenhouse gases in the future. We kick off this series with Charm Industrial’s new method that captures atmospheric CO₂ in biomass, then converts it to a liquid and injects it into rock formations that have stored crude oil for hundreds of millions of years. While recycling and low emission vehicles lower the generation of CO₂, this one is engineered to extract existing gases and remove them.
