Patent teaches how to remove CO2 from cars

Kenneth Murray of Huntington, Vermont has received a patent for a CO2 emission control device intended for use in vehicles. The patent, United States Patent 7,914,758, is entitled “Captured CO2 from atmospheric, industrial and vehicle combustion waste”. The CO2 emission control device involves directing a stream containing CO2 into a apparatus with a filter containing alkaline earth metals. That filter absorbs the CO2 and the filter is later replaced so that the filter can be recycled and the absorbed CO2 may be sequestered. Sequestration is accomplished by converting the CO2 into calcium carbonate which is ultimately combined with volcanic ash to make cement.  Although this may be a valuable technology, it is likely that other technologies more efficiently sequester CO2 on a dollar for dollar basis.
