IIT Chennai researchers found Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal are strong carbon sinks for industrial carbon removal
  • Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, IIT, Chennai, have found that the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal have the potential to store large amounts of carbon dioxide. This process, called 'decarbonisation', will help decarbonise industries. Through this, these oceans will act as greenhouse gas storage space.
  • Researchers have found that carbon dioxide can be permanently stored in the form of solid hydrates under the ocean 500 meters deep. They also discovered that storage as liquid carbon dioxide can decarbonize industrial emissions.
  • In this way, the full potential of the oceans can be used to sequester carbon without harming the marine ecology in any way. A major finding of this research is that the oceans are the largest storage of carbon dioxide. 
  • The research is aimed at helping India achieve its national carbon sequestration and climate change targets. Stored carbon dioxide can be used to create an environmentally friendly snow-like substance called 'gas hydrate'.
  • The research work was conducted under the leadership of Prof. Jitendra Sangwai, Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT, Chennai, and Mr. Yogendra Kumar Misra, Researcher, IIT, Chennai.
