A new University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign study introduced an electrochemical reaction, enhanced by polymers, to improve CO2-to-ethylene conversion efficiency over previous attempts. For years, researchers have worked to repurpose excess atmospheric carbon dioxide into new chemicals, fuels and other products traditionally made from hydrocarbons harvested from fossil fuels. The recent push to mitigate the […]

Lets Recycle CO2!

December 6, 2017 | 3 Comments

Korea’s Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) research team has developed titanium dioxide-based photocatalyst with the highest efficiency in the world that converts carbon dioxide recycling it into methane. The result is expected to be applied to technologies to reduce and reuse carbon dioxide. The team’s titanium dioxide (TiO2) -based high efficiency photocatalyst […]
