Dr. Khan explains the why we must drastically reduce atmospheric CO2, and why carbon capture is a necessary part of that effort. Of the various methods for carbon capture, his project is considered very promising. The carbon capture and conversion system Khan and his colleagues have devised is more efficient and will produce useful products, such as non-polluting transportation fuels.

Dr. Khan’s interdisciplinary approach to engineering solutions reflects a comprehensive perspective that is much needed for solutions to the climate change crisis.
