Soft drink by-products could reduce global warming

Read the full story from Cornell College.

Professor of Chemistry Craig Teague and his students have discovered that the by-products of soft drinks could help reduce global warming.

Cornell College team of researchers worked with other experts at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee on the idea starting in 2016, and their final conclusions were published in the journal article “Microporous and hollow carbon spheres derived from soft drinks: Promising CO2 separation materials” in April of 2019. Their new research shows that the by-products of some soft drinks actually remove carbon dioxide, a gas known to warm the planet, from gas streams.
