New wastewater treatment method promises to make the world greener

Aug. 12, 2015
This purification process captures greenhouse gases while reducing emissions.

Engineers at the University of Colorado Boulder have developed a wastewater treatment process that both mitigates carbon dioxide emissions and actively captures greenhouse gases.

Known as microbial electrolytic carbon capture (MECC), the new process purifies wastewater in an environmentally friendly fashion by using an electrochemical reaction that absorbs more carbon dioxide than it releases while at the same time creating renewable energy.
