Can engineered foam soak up carbon dioxide?

    Yes! The foam, which was influenced by South American frog nests, actually won the 2010 Earth Awards competing with other green start-ups. The Tungara frog makes a foam-like nest by using a protein that fixes carbon dioxide at a faster rate than plants do. David Wendell and Carlo Monetmagno won the funds to make a photosynthetic foam with this protein that will soak up CO2 five times faster than plants. The intention is to put it in coal plants to soak up some of those harmful carbon emissions.
