The Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering team demonstrated the new catalyst to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene, which […]

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 […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have discovered that recycling carbon dioxide into valuable chemicals and fuels can be economical and efficient using a new a single copper catalyst. And Linköping University researchers have now taken an important step towards a method to convert water and carbon dioxide to the renewable energy of the future, using the […]

University of Innsbruck, Austria, scientists and colleagues have now devised a method of using copper as a catalyst in the reaction designed to split water and produce hydrogen in gaseous form. The new model explains interactions between small copper clusters used as low-cost catalysts in the production of hydrogen by breaking down water molecules. Copper […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) scientists have developed a new electrocatalyst that can directly convert carbon dioxide into multicarbon fuels and alcohols using record-low inputs of energy. The work is the latest in a round of studies tackling the challenge of a creating a clean chemical manufacturing system that can put carbon dioxide to good […]
