ABSTRACT
The article reports on the initiative of a research team led by Andrew Harris from the University of Sydney in New South Wales. The goal of this team is to create sponge that will capture the released carbon dioxide from starfish. This process will also alter the chemical reaction that possibly be a good renewable energy source due to an increase of hydrogen amount being produced.
