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 […]

Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have developed a fast and economical method of converting methane, or natural gas, into liquid methanol at ambient temperature and pressure. The method takes place under continuous flow over a photo-catalytic material using visible light to drive the conversion. To help observe how the process works and how selective it […]

  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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory biofuel scientists used an oddball molecule made by bacteria to develop a new class of sustainable biofuels powerful enough to launch rockets. The candidate molecules have greater projected energy density than any petroleum product, including the leading aviation and rocket fuels, JetA and RP-1. Converting petroleum into fuels involves mostly […]

Chalmers University of Technology scientists have pioneered a recycling method that is inspired by the natural carbon cycle and could eliminate the climate impact of plastic materials. Can replace fossil raw materials Henrik Thunman, Professor of Energy Technology at Chalmers University of Technology and one of the authors of the study published in the Journal […]
