The system developed by Šiller could work well to reduce carbon dioxide produced by power plants. Gases from the chimneys could be diverted into water tanks saturated with nickel nanoparticles. The carbon dioxide in the smoke would react with the nickel and form chalk. The solid chalk would then settle to the base of the tank where it could be collected and used in industrial processes such as cement manufacture. However, the system would not be suitable to reduce automobile emissions, because of size constraints.

There you have it again folks (could work and not suitable) More scientific science fiction.

But is it good enough for the containment buildings of nuclear reactors? That's a lot of concrete.

The overall exergy of this is hard to pin down. The nano-particles of nickel would have to be manufactured (and energy intensive process).

And that is exactly what these 'fabulous breakthrough's' never speak about.
