Along with cap and trade, carbon capture and storage is one of the hottest environmental topics right now, and it is actually the more eco-friendly option of the two.

Along with cap and trade, carbon capture and storage is one of the hottest environmental topics right now, and it is actually the more eco-friendly option of the two. Instead of paying for the right to pollute (cap and trade), carbon capture cuts out the pollution before it’s even an issue. In fact, the newest carbon capture system created by Alstom Power and We Energies in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin consistently traps 90% of the carbon that otherwise would have been released through a smokestack. The process uses chilled ammonia to trap the CO2, and will later sell it to be used in oil recovery, or keeping your soda fresh. That’s right – the same CO2 trapped from the atmosphere may one day be the fizz in your pop can. Just another cool technological advancement made that will help make the world a more sustainable place.
