Takeaways:

  • In an effort to tackle climate change, researchers are looking to take carbon-dioxide out of the ocean and turn it into rock.
  • Oceans themselves can hold a lot of CO2, even more than in the atmosphere. And seawater has a lot of calcium and magnesium. Once combined, researchers have found that it creates a calcium carbonate rock such as limestone.
  • By factoring electricity into this equation, a new technology which will run electricity through an electrically charged mesh will be able to use electrolysis to trigger the chemical reaction needed to form these rocks.
  • This could be a huge step to potentially reversing the effects of climate change.
