A new electrocatalyst called a-CuTi@Cu converts carbon dioxide (CO2 ) into liquid fuels. An active copper centered on an amorphous copper/titanium alloy produces ethanol, acetone, and n-butanol with high efficiency. The research has been reported by a team of Chinese researchers in the journal Angewandte Chemie. The team includes members from from Foshan University (Foshan, […]

A team of researchers has now reported the synthesis of a highly active, stable, nickel–carbon catalyst that recycles carbon dioxide through a conversion to methane (natural gas). A useful process for this transformation is photothermal methanation, in which CO2 and hydrogen are catalytically converted into CH4 and water upon irradiation with sunlight. In the journal […]

Researchers at Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) Center for Materials Science used theoretical modeling to identify metals that can convert carbon dioxide into sustainable and clean fuel sources. Led by Associate Professor Liangzhi Kou at QUT, were part of an international study that used theoretical modeling to identify six metals (nickel, niobium, palladium, rhenium, rhodium, […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has announced a patented process for converting alcohol sourced from renewable or industrial waste gasses into jet or diesel fuel. The process is being scaled up at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory with the help of partners at Oregon State University and the carbon-recycling experts at LanzaTech. Two key technologies power […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign scientists’ new catalyst produces hydrocarbons when CO2 and water react with the light driven catalyst. The researchers reported that small quantities of useful molecules such as hydrocarbons are produced when carbon dioxide and water react in the presence of light and the new silver nanoparticle catalyst. Their validation study – […]
