Ev-eon Water Stores Carbon Dioxide


In the UK a lot of people are fighting to stop new coal burning power plants which promise Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). However it has not been figured out and even the Energy Minister says ""CCS is as yet unproven technology and we have to acknowledge there is some risk that safe and reliable CCS for power generation might not be proven or deployable at scale and at reasonable costs."

Launched on April 1, Ev-eon water is a new CCS idea: capture the CO2 from coal plants and use it to carbonate bottled water. As long as you don't burb, the carbon dioxide is nicely sequestered. Unlike most April Fools gags, this one has a serious message. Great video at ::Ev-eon Water via ::Smartplanet News
