University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) chemical engineers have found a way by making catalysts to convert waste carbon dioxide recycling it into useful industrial products. The process so far has been expensive and complicated – until now. Engineers explain in the press release it’s as easy as playing with Legos. The carbon dioxide […]

Wake Forest University scientists have created a new chemical process that does in the lab what trees do in nature, convert carbon dioxide into usable chemicals or fuels. The research paper describing the new chemical process “Colloidal Silver Diphosphide Nanocrystals as Low Overpotential Catalysts for CO2 Reduction to Tunable Syngas,” has been published online in […]

A technology developed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and scaled up by Vertimass LLC to convert ethanol into fuels suitable for aviation, shipping and other heavy-duty applications can be price-competitive with conventional fuels while retaining the sustainability benefits of bio-based ethanol, according to a new analysis. ORNL worked with technology […]

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 […]
