University of Michigan researchers can show how solar-powered synthesis gas could recycle carbon dioxide into fuels and useful chemicals. Zetian Mi, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan (U-M) who led an international team of researchers said, “If we can generate syngas from carbon dioxide utilizing only solar energy, we […]

University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney) chemical engineers have found a way by making catalysts to convert waste carbon dioxide recycling it into useful industrial products. The process so far has been expensive and complicated – until now. Engineers explain in the press release it’s as easy as playing with Legos. The carbon dioxide […]

Rice University engineers have created a light-powered nanoparticle that makes syngas from CO2 and methane. The particle, tiny spheres of copper dotted with single atoms of ruthenium, is the key component in a green process for making syngas, or synthesis gas, a valuable chemical feedstock that’s used to make fuels, fertilizer and many other products. […]

Wake Forest University scientists have created a new chemical process that does in the lab what trees do in nature, convert carbon dioxide into usable chemicals or fuels. The research paper describing the new chemical process “Colloidal Silver Diphosphide Nanocrystals as Low Overpotential Catalysts for CO2 Reduction to Tunable Syngas,” has been published online in […]

University of Cambridge researchers have developed an ‘artificial leaf’ that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water to make syngas. Syngas is a widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels that could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to gasoline. The carbon-neutral device sets a new benchmark in the […]
