A project that turns captured carbon dioxide into food for farmed fish is to be tested in Norway. It involves producing Omega-3 fatty acids from algae that will be grown in a stream of CO2 at a test facility. At present the oil is produced for aquaculture from low value fish or krill caught in...

Nasa launches carbon dioxide observer

Nasa launches carbon dioxide observer

Nasa has launched a mission dedicated to measuring carbon dioxide (CO2) from space. The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) will help pinpoint the key locations on the Earth's surface where the gas is being emitted and absorbed. A Delta rocket carrying the satellite lifted clear of the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 02:56 local...
