Of all our headaches with the extraction and use of fossil fuels, the greatest of all is the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere, the raw material that constitutes fossil fuels has been fixing the excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and burying it underground in the form of coal and oil among others.

De todos nuestros quebraderos de cabeza con la extracción y utilización de combustibles fósiles el mayor de todos es la emisión de CO2 a la atmósfera, la materia prima que constituye los combustibles fósiles ha ido fijando el dióxido de carbono sobrante de la atmósfera y enterrándolo bajo tierra en forma de carbón y petróleo entre otros.

All this retained gas is released into the atmosphere when we burn these fossil fuels for energy and, since we are so donkeys, the release of such a quantity of CO2 breaks the natural balance and this accumulates in the atmosphere producing the known greenhouse effect that causes the warming of our planet.

Todo este gas retenido se libera a la atmósfera cuando quemamos estos combustibles fósiles para obtener energía y, como somos tan burros, la liberación de tal cantidad de CO2 rompe el equilibrio natural y este se acumula en la atmósfera produciendo el conocido efecto invernadero que causa el calentamiento de nuestro planeta.

In recent years, in an attempt to avoid or at least reduce these emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the whole world is working together to change our energy consumption habits towards other types of methods of obtaining energy that are more sustainable than not implies the destruction of the only planet we have.

En los últimos años en un intento por evitar o al menos reducir estas emisiones de dióxido de carbono a la atmósfera el mundo entero se está poniendo las pilas para cambiar nuestros hábitos de consumo energético hacia otro tipo de métodos de obtención de energía mas sostenible que no impliquen la destrucción del único planeta que tenemos.

But that is easier said than done, despite the incredible advances in obtaining solar energy or in battery storage we need time to get everything going, in the meantime we demonize everything that smells like CO2 and as a result everything indicates that we are approaching an unprecedented energy crisis.

Pero eso es más fácil de decir que de hacer, a pesar de los increíbles avances en la obtención de energía solar o en el almacenamiento en baterías necesitamos tiempo para ponerlo todo en marcha, mientras tanto demonizamos todo lo que huele a CO2 y como resultado todo indica que nos acercamos a una crisis energética sin precedentes.

As an intermediate solution, a group of scientists from the University of Australia have developed a method to convert CO2 into a chemical fuel that can be used as an energy source, by combining certain metals with ferroelectric material, these produce a chemical reaction capable of reducing the CO2.

Como solución intermedia un grupo de científicos de la Universidad de Australia han desarrollado un método para convertir el CO2 en un combustible químico que puede utilizarse como fuente de energía, mediante la combinación de ciertos metales con material ferroeléctrico estos producen una reacción química capaz de reducir al CO2.

If this project can be implemented, systems could be designed to collect the CO2 emissions of the current facilities based on fossil fuels, while we are making a smoother transition towards the use of clean energies without having to ruin the world economy along the way.

De conseguir poner en marcha este proyecto se podrían diseñar sistemas para recoger las emisiones de CO2 de las instalaciones actuales basabas en combustibles fósiles, mientras vamos haciendo una transición más suave hacia el uso de energías limpias sin tener que arruinar la economía mundial por el camino.

Hola @mauromar, ese trabajo seria como cambiar una llanta mientras el auto sigue andando.

hello @mauromar,

a couple of months ago one of Mr. elon musk's companies was giving a dollar prize to whoever could provide them with a method to collect co2 Now that I read this article I think it is very possible that soon co2 will be a commonly used fuel and that is where the companies that can collect and process it will benefit enormously.


Eso es genial @mauromar así alargamos la vida del planeta.

It is the first time that I have read about a system to collect CO2 emissions and this seems really incredible to me, it is the best I have read on the subject of emissions in a long time.

I believe that this would not only help with the reduction of polluting emissions and their use, we are talking with this scientific advance of a new lifestyle and a radical change in the concept of air pollution, I want to read more about this.

Thanks for this post @mauromar..!

Thanks for your comment.

Interesting topic, and the illustration is more than evident of what is happening with the planet, unfortunately, because this chaos has no turning back. Blessings.

It is comforting to read news like this, we have to act now, the planet is crying out for it.

Thank you for sharing this information.

Back in school days we used to learn that Co2 is not good for health but now things are changing

This is really educative but I think it's CO that is harmful not
