McPherson, a University of Utah professor, is conducting groundbreaking research on carbon sequestration. This process involves burning fossil fuels for energy, as is standard practice—but instead of releasing the carbon emissions into the atmosphere, pumps them thousands of feet underground to store in unique geologic formations.
McPherson will discuss this innovative CO2 sequestration approach to going green at an upcoming lecture. The research he’s spearheading not only has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but also to generate new jobs in energy production and mining—a definite win-win.
