Rice University materials scientists developed copper-based catalysts to help speed up the rate of carbon dioxide-to-methane conversion. Technologies for removing carbon from the atmosphere keep improving, but solutions for what to do with the carbon once it’s captured are harder to come by. The lab of Rice University materials scientist Pulickel Ajayan and collaborators developed […]

Tokyo University of Science researchers have developed novel in-liquid plasma-treated titanium dioxide electrode decorated with silver nanoparticles to facilitate enhanced conversion of carbon dioxide to useful products, such as syngas, a clean alternative to fossil fuels. The work was made available and published in the journal Science of the Total Environment. Carbon dioxide can be […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Currently when CO2 is trapped before it escapes into the atmosphere, the process requires a large amount of energy and equipment. Now MIT researchers have designed a capture system using an electrochemical cell that can easily grab and release CO2. The device operates at room temperature and requires less energy than conventional, amine-based carbon-capture […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Illinois Institute of Technology research revealed a promising breakthrough in green energy. Their design is an electrolyzer device capable of converting carbon dioxide into propane in a manner that is both scalable and economically viable. The paper published in Nature Energy discusses the pioneering research. As the United States races toward its target of […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed a solar-powered technology that converts carbon dioxide and water into liquid fuels that can be added directly to a car’s engine as drop-in fuel. The researchers report on the new technology in Nature Energy. The researchers harnessed the power of photosynthesis to convert CO2, water and sunlight into multicarbon […]
