Turning unwanted carbon dioxide into electricity

Dec. 12, 2013- 
SAN FRANCISCO - Researchers are developing a new kind of geothermal power plant that will lock away unwanted carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) underground and use it as a tool to boost electric power generation by at least 10 times compared to conventional geothermal power. The technology for this design already exists in different industries, and the researchers, led by Tom Buscheck, earth scientist...
