Scientists convert carbon dioxide into rock in breakthrough climate change experiment - TomoNews

HENGILL, ICELAND — Researchers are hailing a potential game-changer for climate change after successfully converting carbon to rock at a geothermal power plant in Iceland. The project could help to reduce global warming by burying the waste CO2 produced from burning fossil fuels, the Guardian reported. Scientists at the Hellisheidi geothermal power plant converted carbon dioxide into the volcanic rock basalt, according to a study published in the journal Science. The researchers pumped 230 tons of CO2 into rock 500 meters underground, dissolving the gas in water to prevent it from escaping. More than 95 percent of the gas turned to stone within two years, speeding up a natural process that takes hundreds or thousands of years, the Guardian reported. A potential problem for the technique is that it requires 25 tons of water for every ton of buried CO2. However, researchers said seawater can be used, which is abundant at coastal sites, the Guardian reported. The project is seen as an improvement on existing carbon capture and storage methods that store CO2 as a gas, causing concern about potential leaks. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Question is how much co2 does it take to bury co2?
Its been a year and no ones done anything with this information

Pumping tons of water and gas into the ground near coastal sites...I cant see anything going wrong

you mean like the infallible choice of locations for nuke power stations on major fault lines ? Its ok because it is New Clear Energy right ?

Good way of reducing air polution from Fossile fuel to electricity plants.

+Sral Neman saying things deserve to die because they can't change at a staggering rate because we're destroying their habitat too quickly is the actual retarded thing. You're not or evolution, you're just a stupid person who thinks they're right.

fck I already had that kind of idea.....there goes my million bucks......
NEBULA KINKKU (2 years ago)
You could have copyrighted it or whatever you do to claim an idea, besides did you even know how to before they started doing it?

This is basicly building the future mine for more fuel. When enough gets deposited it becomes worthwhile to dig it back up again. Just to burn it all over again. LMFAO !!

+PLPSAutomatic There must be an easy way, And if you could store 50 billion tons of it, then maybe you would want to know.

+Mini produktion Carbon dioxide is not carbon. Very big difference.

Uhh... They're turning it into basalt. A stone. Not coal.

Scientist convert fossilized cave man shit.
vedicastrol (2 years ago)
yeah it's called carbon, or coal.
vedicastrol (2 years ago)
I googled it and it is used as thermal insulator and other uses
vedicastrol (2 years ago)
Thanks for the info. I'm sure it has some use
Eko (2 years ago)
no, its use different process and turned carbon into basalt stone. unlike coal its incombustible
Josh 015 (2 years ago)
Impressive. If they could find a monetary value for the generated basalt, it might even be commercially viable.
vedicastrol (2 years ago)
Google it. It's already sold for many purposes

Fuck climate change... Earths climate has been changing for millions of years and there is absolutely nothing man can do to change it... If you want to battle co2 plant more trees instead of cutting them down..
Donn Worry (2 years ago)
+drviper10 I'm not denying you of your own propaganda fed opinion... But explain this to me why in the hell is all the planets weather changing? Do we have civilizations on all the other planets as well? Or we just live in a significant time where we get to experience our solar system going under some huge changes... Because there is zero correlation of co2 and temp... And our planet is actually cooling and going into a mini ice age... What caused the glaciers to cover North America? What caused them to retract? Cars and factories have only been around approx 100 years...

+drviper10 (also I'm not raging btw or in any way trying to start an argument because I have better things to do then argue )
NEBULA KINKKU (2 years ago)
+Donn Worry it does? didn't even notice. and why are you saying that it hurts? I'm just saying that humans have changed it a lot, does my opinion not matter?
Donn Worry (2 years ago)
+drviper10 your ass hurts a lot

humans have changed it a lot.
we are saved.... for another 50 years.

get ready for some huge earthquakes. I have the best solution; replace the system of WHITE SUPREMACY with a system of justice and that alone will help the planet to recover.
Hyperfoxeye (2 years ago)
+DeAndre Fuentes it effected everyone. Radical laws were passed to lower credit score and down payments to "combat" the "racist" system. Since the lower credit scores defaulted, it overloaded the government's freddy mac and fannie may and it caused the banks to freeze up since they ran out of liqiud assets. With no liquid assets, they couldnt make loans and froze up the economy
Not Telling (2 years ago)
Earthquakes are caused by tectonic plate pressure, you idiot.
