Gallery: Rocket Engine Technology Being Used to Capture Carbon

 

We all know that rocket science is cool – but did you know that it may also be a way to improve carbon capture technology? Under an innovative research project being run by the Department of Energy’s IMPACCT (Innovative Materials & Processes for Advanced Carbon Capture Technologies) program, the Inertial CO2 Extraction System (ICES) project developed by aerospace contractor ATK seeks to rapidly cool and capture CO2 from flue gasses by forcing them through rocket motors.
