University of Illinois at Chicago researchers have determined how electrocatalysts can convert carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide using water and electricity. The discovery can lead to the development of efficient electrocatalysts for large scale production of synthesis gas – a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen. Meenesh Singh, assistant professor of chemical engineering and lead […]

University of Liverpool researchers have made a significant breakthrough in the direct conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) into liquid fuels and chemicals which could help industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while producing valuable chemical feedstocks. Or, its recycling some of the CO2. Its a very interesting catalytic process. In a paper […]

Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) has announced the first 200 liters of synthetic fuel have now been produced from solar energy and the air’s carbon dioxide by KIT’s SOLETAIR project, a type of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. The mobile chemical pilot plant can be used decentrally producing gasoline, diesel, and kerosene from regenerative hydrogen and carbon dioxide. […]

Researchers at Lappeenranta University of Technology, (LUT) in Finland are engaged in The Neo-Carbon Energy Research Project and Technology with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd to enable the production of synthetic fuels straight from the air. The project is built on carbon dioxide capture, water electrolysis and subsequent synthesis units such as methanation […]

Researchers at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) have developed a new catalyst that does the electrolysis of carbon dioxide into oxygen and carbon monoxide. The scientists have developed an Earth-abundant catalyst based on copper-oxide nanowires modified with tin oxide. This is a step into the future of clean energy by storing it in the […]
