Earned 3 Patents: Research project to convert carbon dioxide into hydrocarbon products and mitigate global warming

Carbon dioxide gas is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect and has been recognized as a principle source of global warming. Various initiatives have been carried out across the globe to mitigate carbon dioxide emission. The world consumes approximately one billion barrels of oil equal to atmospheric release of 1 trillion pounds of CO2 for each 12 days, which is creating serious problems such as global warming, drought and deforestation affecting living conditions on earth and drastic climate change. The new study revealed a linear link between emissions of CO2 and the loss of Arctic sea ice, which has shrunk by half in the last 40 years. The link enables people to understand their own contribution to climate change.
