The new system takes the equal volume of water and methane. However haven't found for the methane produced in the form of carbon dust application yet.

according to Daniel Laurini from the ESA, directing system development, his team doesn't plan to increase system productivity for processing more than 50 percent of the exhaled carbon dioxide yet.
