rock it

it has been found out that when a a type of rock called peridotite comes into contact with carbon dioxide, it will turn the green house gas into solid minerals like calcite.

peridotite is a common rock that is found under the earth's crust. sadly it is expected to cost to much to mine for this rock, but some periodotite can be found on or near the earth's surface in some places such as Oman, Papua New Guinea, Caledonia, California and the coast of the Adriatic Sea.
