CO2ube Removes the CO2 As It Exists Your Car’s Exhaust Pipe

by Hazel Chua

The carbon dioxide from car exhausts is one of the biggest contributors to air pollution, which leads to the greenhouse effect and contributes to global warming.

Take your car out for a ride only when you have to and walk when you can. But if you can’t minimize car usage just yet, then check out the CO2ube instead.


It’s a pipe attachment of sorts that’s fastened directly on your car’s tailpipe. The CO2ube is said to filter out the carbon dioxide as the exhaust is emitted, making sure it isn’t released into the atmosphere. The tube uses a combination of algae and sodium hydroxide to strip the exhaust of the CO2 as it exits.

The CO2ube is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where it’ll cost you $35(USD) to get one. The filter needs to be replaced every eight to ten weeks, so you might want to take the plunge and pledge $500 to get a year’s supply of the filters.

    This is great, maybe we will see something similar be picked up by car manufacturers soon. It would help their models fall within new tax-requirements in many nations.

    I’m going to laugh when people realize the Earth warms and cools naturally and feels retarded about this sort of thing.

    We’ve only been tracking temperature for a MAX of two centuries. Liiiiiittle bit hard to determine based on that data whether or not we’re at fault when the Earth’s cycles are longer than that.

    Lolwhat – you have little understanding of geology, climatology. While it is true that science only has direct measurements from the last 200 years, nonetheless paleo-geologists and other similar scientists have been able to analyze historic and pre-historic climates for decades now. I know this because I worked in the geo/earth scoences department at my university for a decade. Please educate yourself and don’t make incorrect claims based on your lack of information.
