Does the solution to climate change lie in a giant SPONGE?

While global warming continues unabated, a team from Liverpool University has come up with a polymer which absorbs CO2 and could be used in smokestacks to prevent CO2 from power plants getting into the atmosphere.

Speaking at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society(ACS), Dr Andrew Cooper of Liverpool University said: ‘The key point is that this polymer is stable, it’s cheap and it absorbs CO2 extremely well. It’s geared toward function in a real-world environment. In a future landscape where fuel-cell technology is used, this adsorbent could work toward zero-emission technology.’
