Companies Carbon Dioxide

Westfalen AG, Germany

Westfalen Group: energy that gives more The Westfalen Group was founded in 1923 in Münster. With over 1,600 employees, in 2014 the family-run company led by Chairman of the Board Wolfgang Fritsch-Albert posted its best ever results with a turnover of around 1.8 billion euros. The company's activiti more

Supercritical CO2 Extraction Systems for Analysis and R&D

High-pressure extraction of analytes and active substances is achieved using supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) instead of an organic solvent. more

News Carbon Dioxide

  • New material captures carbon dioxide

    A new material that can selectively capture carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules and efficiently convert them into useful organic materials has been developed by researchers at Kyoto University, along with colleagues at the University of Tokyo and Jiangsu Normal University in China. They describe the mate more

  • Converting carbon dioxide to valuable resources with the help of nanoparticles

    Enzymes use cascade reactions to produce complex molecules from comparatively simple raw materials. Researchers have now copied this principle. An international research team has used nanoparticles to convert carbon dioxide into valuable raw materials. Scientists at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in German more

  • New route to carbon-neutral fuels from carbon dioxide discovered

    If the idea of flying on battery-powered commercial jets makes you nervous, you can relax a little. Researchers have discovered a practical starting point for converting carbon dioxide into sustainable liquid fuels, including fuels for heavier modes of transportation that may prove very difficult to more

Nano-spike catalysts convert carbon dioxide directly into ethanol

In a new twist to waste-to-fuel technology, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed an electrochemical process that uses tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into ethanol. Their finding, which involves nanofabric ... more

How seawater strengthens Roman concrete

The ancient Romans had a recipe for concrete that won't corrode in seawater. Scientists are trying to figure it out. more

Ocean Acidification:

Ocean acidification is often referred to as ‘the other carbon dioxide problem’. We’re all quite rightly concerned about the effects that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels may have on climate, and the potential consequences of climate change are well documented: more frequent instances of extr more

The Chemistry of Champagne

With New Year’s Eve upcoming, a large number of people will celebrate by popping open a bottle of champagne. The bubbles in your glass may seem simple enough, but there’s actually a wealth of interesting chemistry behind them – chemistry that’s vital for the perceived taste and aroma of the wine. Th more

RealTimeChem Week:

The graphic takes a look at the research of Econic Technologies, a company which uses catalysts to incorporate captured waste carbon dioxide into polymers, which can themselves be incorporated into useful plastics. more

  • Theoretical Study of the CO2 Hydrogenation into Formic Acid on Lewis Acidic Zeolites

    Conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) to more valuable chemicals has nowadays received the increasing attention from an environmental and industrial point of view. Herein, we computationally investigate the CO2 hydrogenation to formic acid on Lewis acidic zeolites by means of the density functional the more

  • Net-zero emissions energy systems

    Some energy services and industrial processes—such as long-distance freight transport, air travel, highly reliable electricity, and steel and cement manufacturing—are particularly difficult to provide without adding carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere. Rapidly growing demand for these services, more

  • Path to zero carbon emissions

    Energy Models show that to avert dangerous levels of climate change, global carbon dioxide emissions must fall to zero later this century. Most of these emissions arise from energy use. Davis et al. review what it would take to achieve decarbonization of the energy system. Some parts of the energy more
