University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign scientists’ new catalyst produces hydrocarbons when CO2 and water react with the light driven catalyst. The researchers reported that small quantities of useful molecules such as hydrocarbons are produced when carbon dioxide and water react in the presence of light and the new silver nanoparticle catalyst. Their validation study – […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of California – Berkeley chemists have come up with an efficient and less expensive technique for removing CO2 from natural gas plant emissions. The technique could be tweaked for higher output plants that use coal. The chemists took a magnesium-based metal-organic framework and added a tetraamine that catalyzes a CO2 polymer easily removed […]

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute chemical engineers have demonstrated how to convert CO2 to methanol more efficient by using a highly effective separation membrane they produced. Carbon dioxide, on one hand, is a greenhouse gas that is the unwanted byproduct of many industrial processes. In the other, methanol is a versatile and efficient chemical used as fuel […]

MIT researchers have devised a new way of removing carbon dioxide from a stream of air. The press release asserts it could provide a significant tool in the battle against climate change. The new system can work on the gas at virtually any concentration level, even down to the roughly 400 parts per million currently […]

Rice University researchers have built a electrocatalysis reactor that recycles carbon dioxide to produce pure liquid fuel solutions using electricity. The scientists behind the invention hope it will become an efficient and profitable way to recycle and reuse CO2. The CO2 could be repurposed in an efficient and environmentally friendly way with the new electrolyzer […]
