The article focuses on the technological advances in controlling carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Some of the advanced methods of CO2 sequestration like geological, oceans and mineral sequestration are discussed. Among the CO2 separation and capture technologies cited are chemical absorption of CO2 using an amine solvent, adsorption and cryogenic separation. It mentions that Newcastle University researchers developed a method of converting waste CO2 into cyclic carbonates.
