Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… UCLA scientists have developed nanoscale copper wires with specially shaped surfaces to catalyze a chemical reaction that reduces CO2 gas emissions  recycling  the CO2 while generating ethylene – a valuable chemical simultaneously. The Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering team demonstrated the new catalyst to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene, which […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers have designed and additively manufactured a first-of-its-kind aluminum device that enhances the capture of carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuel plants and other industrial processes. Solutions for reducing global emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases such as CO2 address the continued use of low-cost, domestic fossil fuel resources while mitigating […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed a standalone device that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into a carbon-neutral fuel, without requiring any additional components or electricity. The device, developed by a team from the University of Cambridge, in collaboration with the team of Professor Kazunari Domen from the University of Tokyo, a co-author of […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Oregon State University researchers have made a key advance in the green chemistry pursuit of converting the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into reusable forms of carbon. The research effort led by Zhenxing Feng of the OSU College of Engineering and colleagues at Southern University of Science and Technology in China and Stanford University describes […]

A team of Brown University researchers has found a way to fine-tune a copper catalyst to produce complex hydrocarbons – known as C2-plus products – from CO2 with remarkable efficiency. By efficiently converting CO2 into complex hydrocarbon products, the new catalyst could potentially aid in large-scale efforts to recycle excess carbon dioxide into useful carbon-based […]
