After noticing the problems with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, Sung Kim has set out to develop an atmosphere cleansing device that will aid in the ridding of CO2 from our air. Project Green Plane is an ambitious idea that involves attaching a direct air capturing device to commercial planes to collect carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This collected gas will then be taken and, through a process called artificial photosynthesis, turned into hydrogen fuel.


Presented as part of the 8th annual Bear Innovation Competition. This year’s theme was ‘Meeting the Moment: Unique Ideas that Are Needed to Solve Problems and Build a Better World.”
