Scientists from NTU have developed a new way to turn ash generated from its waste treatment facility, into sorbents that can capture carbon dioxide from exhaust fumes. The project was one of 12 awarded a combined $55 million in grants under the national Low-Carbon Energy Research Funding Initiative, which seeks to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
