Suddhasatta , a class 10 student from Kalna, Burdwan district, West Bengal has created a history and outsmarts the scientists. He has successfully extracted electricity from carbon dioxide. He is no ordinary student of Class 10, because this young man has set himself apart from the crowd by lighting a bulb using carbon dioxide.
According to sources, he used to work day and night in his lab to extract electricity from carbon dioxide, an idea on which scientists around the world are still working.
Meanwhile, miles away from Netherlands, this young student of Burdwan's Kendriya Vidyalaya brought together his own equipment and did the same, all by himself.
He used an aluminum rod to pass carbon dioxide through a small electronic circuit, which results to the generation of 12 volts of energy. Suddhasatta's technique is being very well considered because it is not only a cheaper way of extracting energy from carbon dioxide, but also a means by which the harmful gas can be used for something this efficient at a much lesser cost.
