Siegel, R. (2018): The Artificial Tree

Siegel, R. (2018): The Artificial Tree. In: Mechanical Engineering 140 (11), S. 34. DOI: 10.1115/1.2018-NOV-2.

"Inside Arizona State University in Tempe’s lab sit the parts for an artificial tree, capable of extracting carbon dioxide 1,000 times faster than a natural tree. The research team is methodically transforming the process into a machine through which carbon dioxide doesn’t get turned into fruit or roots or tree trunks, as it does with a natural tree, but simply gets collected by resin in a reversible chemical process. This article takes a closer look at the process."
