Saudi Aramco researcher Wajdi Al Sadat envisions that his innovative system will integrate power generation sources with renewables to reduce CO2 emissions.

Seeking an innovative way to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) by using a new battery setup is the goal of Cornell University doctoral candidate and Saudi Aramcon Wajdi Al Sadat, who gained special recognition from the prestigious journal, Scientific American, for his idea.

Describing the idea as “carbon-breathing batteries,” the magazine recently named his proposal as the first of “10 Ideas That Will Change the World.” One day, the batteries might outfit a power plant or automotive tail pipe — using CO2 in the process instead of producing it.
