Carbon capture strategy could lead to emission-free cars
ATLANTA (February 11, 2008) Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a strategy to capture, store and eventually recycle carbon from vehicles to prevent the pollutant from finding its way from a car tailpipe into the atmosphere. Georgia Tech researchers envision a zero em...
