University of Cambridge researchers have developed an ‘artificial leaf’ that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water to make syngas. Syngas is a widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels that could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to gasoline. The carbon-neutral device sets a new benchmark in the […]

Stanford University researchers have found a new way to convert carbon dioxide into the building block for sustainable liquid fuels. The new process was very efficient in tests and did not have the reaction that destroys a conventional device. The Stanford researchers have discovered a practical starting point for converting carbon dioxide recycling it back […]

Rice University researchers have built a electrocatalysis reactor that recycles carbon dioxide to produce pure liquid fuel solutions using electricity. The scientists behind the invention hope it will become an efficient and profitable way to recycle and reuse CO2. The CO2 could be repurposed in an efficient and environmentally friendly way with the new electrolyzer […]

Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) chemists have developed an efficient process for converting carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a key ingredient of synthetic fuels and other materials. At EPFL, this research is spearheaded by a team led by Professor Xile Hu at the Laboratory of Inorganic Synthesis and Catalysis (LSCI). The chemists have recently […]

ETH Zurich researchers have developed a novel technology that produces liquid hydrocarbon fuels exclusively from sunlight and air. For the first time worldwide they demonstrate the entire thermochemical process chain under real field conditions. The new solar mini-refinery is located on the roof of ETH’s Machine Laboratory building in Zurich, Switzerland. Carbon-neutral fuels are crucial […]
