A new type of battery developed by researchers at MIT could be made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. Rather than attempting to convert carbon dioxide to specialized chemicals using metal catalysts, which is currently highly challenging, this battery could continuously convert carbon dioxide into a solid mineral carbonate as it discharges.

I've not seen the data of the chemistry but if it is what it sounds like the resultant lithium carbonate may have applications in ceramics, cement and construction adhesives, glasswares, medical applications and perhaps a few other fields. Though I have to ask where the supply of lithium will come from.

Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.
