Brilliant ideas can come from anywhere. For school work, ten years ago, Klaus Lackner suggested her daughter make dust absorber. It turns out the child's school assignment ignite professor of geophysics at Columbia University, United States, it further thought.
He then designed a tool absorber of carbon dioxide pollution of motor vehicles and factories. Named 'synthetic tree', a tool that can absorb a thousand times more CO2 than natural trees.
Now Global Research Technologies Laboratory, Colorado, developed a synthetic tree made from aluminum. And United Energy Commission has approved it. 'The final goal of this project is to condense 100 thousand years of pollution absorption by trees to 30 minutes, "said Lackner told CNN last week.
Synthetic tree-like form of ultraviolet light-absorbing antenna - measuring 30 x 5 meters. Works the same basis, namely the blocking of carbon dioxide in the air. Like the original tree, Lackner panel capable of blowing oxygen. The remaining carbon can be used for offshore oil drilling machinery, hydrocarbons, or aviation fuel.
One synthetic tree can absorb carbon dioxide area of one hectare, or the equivalent of 90 thousand tons of CO2 (emissions of 15 thousand cars) in a year. If the synthetic tree could be mass produced and effective work in developed countries, the world's carbon emissions could be reduced by at least a fifth.
Every year there are 29 billion tons of carbon dioxide pumped into the atmosphere: 80 percent comes from motor vehicles. Each 1 gram of gasoline produces 3.14 grams of carbon dioxide. In Indonesia, consumption of gasoline per year to reach 584 million barrels per year. That is, there are 291.5 million tons of carbon dioxide that we produce in one year.
