Interesting article on proof of concept device developed by Remora Carbon to capture 80% CO2 emissions from the exhaust systems of haulage truck which can be on sold to other industries such as concrete manufacturing. Great innovative thinking to tackle emissions and help haulage companies offset rising fuel costs.

A really interesting idea. I wonder whether it would have better luck for success if this was around 20 years ago and would have curbed the need to develop electric or hydrogen trucking alternatives, but now that we're seeing a movement away from the traditional diesel engine will that end up making this type of CO2 capture less necessary?

A version of this system might be used for shipping, and that may help with profits for Remora Carbon.

I wonder if the market need for CO2 is near to what might be available if this technology is widely adopted.
