New research shows rail systems around the world could be harnessed to help mitigate climate change and clean our air of CO2 CO2 Rail Car New research shows rail systems around the world could be harnessed to help mitigate climate change and clean our air of CO2

Researchers from the University of Sheffield are working with US-based CO2Rail Company to design Direct Air Capture equipment which can be used within special rail cars placed with already running trains

On average, each complete train braking manoeuvre generates enough energy to power 20 homes for an entire day – until now this enormous amount of sustainable energy has been wasted

If the energy of every stop or deceleration for every train in the world could be captured it would harness 105 times more energy than the Hoover Dam produces in the same time period

Rail systems around the world could help mitigate climate change and clean the air of CO2 by capturing the sustainable energy generated when trains break and decelerate.

US-based startup, CO2Rail Company have been working with a world-renowned team of researchers, including engineers from the University of Sheffield, to design Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology that removes […]
