  1. Large industrial structures like factories and power plants release extremely high amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. These facilities, despite providing a necessary service, are also contributing to the growing amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. However, a new system -- carbon capture -- has been introduced that might be able to help deal with this problem. With carbon capture, carbon emissions are trapped at the source, before they can enter the atmosphere, and transferred to a storage location, where they can be dealt with safely.
