The problem of emission of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere is inevitable but the amount of carbon dioxide prevalent in the atmosphere today is menacing. The level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere being almost 400 ppm is itself a threat to the future generations. The world had come together to fight the rising level of co2 but with no watershed achievement apart from setting some international forums. The techniques available to us for keeping a check on rising level of carbon dioxide; Scrubbing Towers, Artificial Tree, Bio char, STEP, have been successful to certain extent but have been warped by the capital involved with the particular technique. The funding involved in these techniques is way too high which has led to the question: What if the non-renewable source of energy can be used to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and provide us with a cleaner air? The best answer would be the use of solar powered carbon capture device.
