From Greenhouse Gas to a High-tech Resource

26-Mar-2020

At Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the NECOC research project is aimed at building a unique test facility for active reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). The world’s first container-scale facility of this type is to convert CO2 contained in ambient air into highly pure carbon ...

Closing the carbon cycle to stop climate change

Defects in nanosilica can save planet earth from global warming

20-Mar-2020

An excessive amount of carbon dioxide is the main cause of climate change. One of the best approaches is to capture and convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into fuel such as methane. On the other hand, a sustainable way to solve the energy problem is to generate alternative energy source, however, ...

3D Hierarchically Porous Nanostructured Catalyst Helps Efficiently Reduce CO2​

17-Mar-2020

KAIST researchers developed a three-dimensional (3D) hierarchically porous nanostructured catalyst with carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbon monoxide (CO) conversion rate up to 3.96 times higher than that of conventional nanoporous gold catalysts. This new catalyst helps overcome the existing ...

Sustainable use of CO2 using a modified bacterium

13-Mar-2020

A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam-Golm, led by Dr. Arren Bar-Even, has succeeded in reprogramming the diet of the bacterium E. coli in such a way that it can use formic acid or methanol as its sole source of nutrition. These simple organic ...
