Scientists have found a way to combat climate change with milk

(ORDO NEWS) — Researchers at Klaxon University in the United States have found a way to collect carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere. All that is needed is processed milk, which is usually discharged by farmers down the drain.

Researchers plan to convert the excess milk normally dumped into “activated carbon” to purify the atmosphere

Researchers have long been trying to develop technology that would help “catch” greenhouse gas from the air. The main thing in such a system is to choose the right material that can bind to carbon atoms in the atmosphere.

New research, published in the journal Advanced Sustainable Systems, suggests controlling carbon dioxide emissions with processed milk. This method will also help you get rid of food waste.

Dairy farms are currently disposing of nearly 190 million liters of surplus milk and dairy products per year. Researchers suggest not pouring everything into the sewer, but creating an analogue of activated carbon from milk – a porous substance to which carbon dioxide “sticks”.

Milk-derived carbon sorbents can also be used for other purposes, such as cleaning indoor air, the researchers say.

Dairy farms are one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Mostly due to methane emissions from cows. Therefore, researchers want to create a kind of “balance” when using dairy products to fight greenhouse gases.
