Which materials can be used to filter carbon dioxide in an indoor enviroment?

Sure, you can engineer something. There are chemical reactions that will use CO2 and there are materials that will adsorb it. The mechanisms to compress and force air through such a scrubber would be expensive, there would be a carbon footprint (power is required), plus an ongoing chemical cost (itself with a carbon footprint from manufacturing and transportation).

But, three points:

  1. If you are in an enclosed space and CO2 is being generated that is then building up in the enclosed space, GET OUT. It’s not toxic like Filter Materials Manufacturers  CO, but you sure aren’t going to be able to survive breathing it if it actually displaces the breathable air (this will take a LOT of CO2). Don’t think “I need to scrub the CO2,” think, “I need to stop whatever is causing a CO2 buildup from venting to the indoors.”
  2. Again, I reiterate, not toxic. If you have some concern that rising CO2 levels in Earth’s atmosphere are somehow a direct health risk forSpiral Mesh Belts Manufacturers you or your family, stop thinking that now. If you’re ascribing to a “news” source that is telling you it’s a health risk, stop reading that source now. This is the kind of alarmism that keeps kids from being vaccinated and has people swearing that gluten causes cancer, Alzheimer’s, impotence, and plane crashes.
  3. In any case, why try to improve upon nature’s perfect solution?
