Lu, L.; Guest, J.; Peters, C.; Zhu, X.; Rau, G.; Ren, Z. (2018): Wastewater treatment for carbon capture and utilization. In: Nature Sustainability 1 (12), S. 750–758. DOI: 10.1038/s41893-018-0187-9.

“This Review summarizes alternative wastewater treatment pathways capable of simultaneous CO2 capture and utilization, and demonstrates the environmental and economic benefits of microbial electrochemical and phototrophic processes. Preliminary estimates demonstrate that re-envisioning wastewater treatment may entirely offset the industry’s greenhouse gas footprint and make it a globally significant contributor of negative carbon emissions.”
