Scientists at Larpa Labs in Taiwan claim to have built the world's first carbon negative processor, which uses nanotechnology to capture carbon atoms and bind them to the processing core to extend memory and add power.
The company explained that the chip could help to reduce the carbon footprint of datacentres around the world.
"Nanotubes are already part of the computing culture and this development will see them taken mainstream," said Professor Sandals.
The processors use self-organising systems that work in line with intelligent design features that occur naturally in all living matter to build the most economically efficient design possible given the state of the atmosphere.
Technology companies have been in the vanguard of building strategies to handle global climate change.
Observers have suggested that the chips could also be used to solve global food shortages, save the polar bear and take out recycling.
