A team of researchers has now reported the synthesis of a highly active, stable, nickel–carbon catalyst that recycles carbon dioxide through a conversion to methane (natural gas). A useful process for this transformation is photothermal methanation, in which CO2 and hydrogen are catalytically converted into CH4 and water upon irradiation with sunlight. In the journal […]

University of Adelaide in Australia scientists have a new process for carbon neutral fuel with the development of a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air into synthetic natural gas in a ‘clean’ process using solar energy. The research undertaken by University of Adelaide in collaboration with CSIRO could make viable […]
