Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Cambridge researchers have developed a solar energy powered system that can transform plastic waste and greenhouse gases into sustainable fuels and other valuable products. The system can convert two waste streams into two chemical products at the same time. Its likely to be the first time this has been achieved in a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Tokyo Institute of Technology scientists developed a polymer-based photocatalyst for CO2 reduction that exhibits unprecedented performance. Made from abundant elements and requiring no complex post-synthesis treatment or modifications, it could pave the way for a new class of photocatalysts for efficiently converting CO2 into useful chemicals. The idea is to convert CO2 into useful […]

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 […]

Nagoya Institute of Technology scientists combined two promising photocatalysts to obtain higher solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency and durability in a water splitting cell. Both industry and academia have been focusing heavily on hydrogen as a feasible clean alternative fuel. Hydrogen is practically inexhaustible and when reacted to generate energy, only produces water vapor. However, to realize […]
