By utilizing a mobile capture concept, University of Michigan researchers have designed a way to capture 70-80 percent of all CO2 emissions from truck exhaust pipes. The effort aims to help curb climate change.

Climate change is a pressing issue, and carbon dioxide emissions greatly contribute. This process being developed to collect heavy duty exhaust will help reduce emissions and is a renewable process. Once capacity in the tank is reached, steam or hot gas can be used to recycle the materials and repeat the cycle over and over.

This video features Christina Reynolds, PhD Candidate in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Christian M. Lastoskie, Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
