In the global life and death battle for zero emissions, this technology could create 1/3 of the global cooling needed to stabilize the climate.
It first thermocatalytically destroys ambient GHGs, then emits hydroxyl radicals which seek and destroy methane and synthetic GHGs over long distances
It could reverse 1/3 of the present global warming caused by the greenhouse gases that it can destroy
It needs funding in order to build a working pilot demonstration to establish confidence in it as infrastructure for large stakeholders and taxpayer groups
This technology is appropriate for destroying methane pulses from the Arctic which are projected to fully trigger in the amount of 400 gigatonnes at a warming of 1.5C and the world must be ready for this threat, or face an uninhabitable world. This innovation will affect everyone by helping to cool the present warming trend and improve air quality. In order to respond effectively to the climate threats now underway, the technology needs support to meet those urgent goals. Emergency infrastructure for the climate is now necessary, and this scalable membrane technology would quickly serve to remove greenhouse gases with the #1 natural removal agent, the safe and FDA approved hydroxyl radical circulating in the atmosphere at enhanced levels to meet the excess of greenhouse gases head on. The technology has had prototyping work and just needs a demonstration stage before it scales up modularly. Mankind needs to effectively clean urban air of climate and other pollutants.
