  • Engineered E. coli could make carbohydrates, renewable fuel, from CO2

    Researchers from Newcastle University, UK have engineered Escherichia coli bacteria to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) using hydrogen gas (H2) to convert it into formic acid. The research, published in Applied and Environmental  Microbiology raises the possibility of converting atmospheric CO2 to commo more

  • Carbon dioxide as a raw material for plastics and other products

    Carbon dioxide is one of the main drivers of climate change – which means that we need to reduce Carbon dioxide emissions in the future. Fraunhofer researchers are highlighting a possible way to lower these emissions: They use the greenhouse gas as a raw material, for instance to produce plastics. T more

  • Mechanism Deciphered: How Organic Acids Are Formed in the Atmosphere

    The acidity of the atmosphere is increasingly determined by carbon dioxide and organic acids such as formic acid. The second of these contribute to the formation of aerosol particles as a precursor of raindrops and therefore impact the growth of clouds and pH of rainwater. In previous atmospheric ch more
