Plants produce about one trillion tons of cellulose annually through a carbon dioxide process
. It is a renewable source with very low environmental impact in producing and displacing and can also be easily made in large quantities.
The company has licensed a carbon dioxide process
from the University of Florida that kills microorganisms and extends the shelf life of juices while retaining freshness and nutrients.
Nickel based catalysts show acceptable performance in methane reforming with carbon dioxide process
. However, most of them lose their effectiveness due to coke formation.
In 2007, the National Research Council released its decadal survey recommending the use of an active LIDAR system to provide new information on carbon dioxide processes
over all regions of the Earth, during night and day.
