The University of Illinois Chicago researchers new system uses electrolysis to transform captured carbon dioxide gas into high purity ethylene, with other carbon-based fuels and oxygen as byproducts. Their reporting paper has been published in Cell Reports Physical Science. The discovery offers a way to convert 100% of carbon dioxide captured from industrial exhaust into […]

Researchers at St John’s College, University of Cambridge designed devices made of readily available oxide and carbon-based materials that can produce clean hydrogen from water over weeks. The findings could help overcome one of the key issues in solar fuel production, where current earth-abundant light-absorbing materials are limited through either their performance or stability. The […]

  University of Michigan researchers can show how solar-powered synthesis gas could recycle carbon dioxide into fuels and useful chemicals. Zetian Mi, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan (U-M) who led an international team of researchers said, “If we can generate syngas from carbon dioxide utilizing only solar energy, we […]

Michigan State University researchers have developed a chemical method that enables electricity and water to break the strong chemical bonds in biomass or plant matter. The “electrocatalytic” process could be applied to lignin, a carbon-rich biomass component that is usually discarded or simply burned as a byproduct of making paper. The new tool also has […]

Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) engineers reports they have developed a catalyst by adding a flat platinum interface to NiFe-layered double hydroxide (LDH). The new catalyst increases hydrogen production efficiency and displays 11.2 times higher activity than conventional catalysts. Ang butter bread, made by layering butter and red bean spread, creates a new […]
