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 […]

Waseda University scientists of Japan have developed a new method to convert carbon dioxide to methane with an electric field at low temperatures. Compared to previous methods, this new method can produce any amount of methane whenever necessary. Methane, the main component of natural gas can be used to generate heat and electricity, so this […]

Researchers from Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), Fritz-Haber Institute Berlin and Fraunhofer Umsicht in Oberhausen have found a catalyst for carbon dioxide recycling using the mineral pentlandite. Pentlandite may also be a conceivable alternative to expensive precious metal catalysts. By adding a suitable solvent, the researchers successfully utilized pentlandite to convert carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a […]

University of South Carolina researchers have developed potentially inexpensive catalysts that efficiently convert CO2 to CO in an electrochemical cell. The new research presents a strong step forward in the effort to not just sequester carbon dioxide, but recycle it into a useful fuel that is part of a carbon-neutral future. Xiao-Dong Zhou, an associate […]
