NYC skyscrapers turning to carbon capture


Source: TH

New York City is implementing a new law that requires building owners to make significant emissions cuts or face fines. To comply, property managers are installing carbon capture systems that capture carbon dioxide from building emissions, cool it into a liquid, and mix it into concrete where it becomes a mineral.


The captured carbon dioxide is then sold to concrete manufacturers or carbonated beverages or soap manufacturers.


Usage: The example can be used in Governance/Environment question to highlight how cities can help minimize carbon emissions.
