    I am sorry, but this story is so grossly oversold as the latest/greatest “CO2 capture device”, that it can only backfire.
    “The group’s proposed cell would use aluminum as the anode (…)” – which means aluminum metal will be used in the process. Which means the aluminum ore must be dug up from underground and the Al metal must be milled out of it. Which takes lots and lots of energy. Far more energy than potentially produced by Cornell power cells. And, at present, lots of energy means lots of released additional CO2. Thus, this invention is a chemical curiosity, at best, not the promised “CO2 capture” wonderland.
