False Cypress Excellent at Absorbing CO2

False Cypress Excellent at Absorbing CO2

DAEJEON, Jun. 5 (Korea Bizwire) — False cypress, similar to the hinoki cypress, was found to be capable of demonstrating robust growth and an excellent capability of absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2). False cypress, among other conifer trees, is known to have the strongest resistance against sulfite gas and CO2. False cypress is also known to [...]
