#FORBES: WE CAN CAPTURE CARBON, BUT WHAT THEN? TURNING A PROFIT WILL BE KEY
It’s not new: the technology has been commercially available since the 1970s and is currently used to help industrial plants reduce the amount of carbon and other greenhouse gases they spew into the air, mostly through powerful scrubbers at the site.
A more practical challenge is that carbon emissions are still predominantly seen as an expense for companies. One of the hurdles for the blossoming of carbon capture technology will be coming up with creative ways to convert it into a valuable product.
