University of Colorado Boulder researchers have developed a new tool that could lead to more efficient and cheaper technologies for capturing heat-trapping gases from the atmosphere and converting them into beneficial substances, like fuel or building materials. The scientists described their technique in a paper published this month in the journal iSCIENCE. The method predicts […]

Researchers at Stockholm University have for the first time been able to study the surface of a copper-zinc catalyst when carbon dioxide is reduced to methanol. A better knowledge of the catalytic process and the possibility of finding even more efficient materials opens the door for a green transition in the chemical industry. The researchers […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory scientists hope to optimize fixing carbon with an enzyme from soil microbes for producing fuels, antibiotics and other products from CO2. When it comes to fixing carbon, plants have nothing on soil bacteria that can do it 20 times faster. The secret is an enzyme that ‘juggles’ reaction ingredients. The […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed an efficient concept to recycle carbon dioxide into clean, sustainable fuels, without any unwanted by-products or waste. The researchers, from the University of Cambridge, have previously shown that biological catalysts, or enzymes, can produce fuels cleanly using renewable energy sources, but at low efficiency Their latest research has improved […]

A new Massachusetts Institute of Technology study reveals why some attempts to convert and recycle carbon dioxide into fuel have failed, and offers possible solutions. If researchers could find a way to chemically convert carbon dioxide and recycle it into fuels or other products, they might make the current carbon dioxide cycle a real time […]
