New University of Michigan initiative aims to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels

To address the problem of increasing CO2 emissions, The Lemelson Foundation has partnered with the University of Michigan Energy Institute’s Global CO2 Initiative. The initiative aims to develop technologies to utilize captured carbon dioxide for carbon-based products, like construction materials, fuels, and agricultural materials. These innovations hope to make removal of CO2 from the atmosphere not just an environmental social good, but a business-friendly decision.

Through these methods, the Global CO2 Initiative aims to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels by the equivalent of 10% of current levels by 2030.
