Congratulations to Beth Dieroff and Téa Hope for receiving the ArcelorMittal Dofasco Environment Award and a Silver Merit Award at the Bay Area Science Fair Contest. Their project focused on reducing carbon dioxide emissions from cars through a device that would filter the carbon dioxide and combine it with calcium hydroxide to produce calcium carbonate, which can be used in many different products such as chalk, limestone, marble, antacids, baking powder and toothpaste. This innovative idea would have positive impact on climate change.
