Researchers have made real-time movies of copper nanoparticles as they evolve to convert carbon dioxide and water into renewable fuels and chemicals
Since the 1970s, scientists have known that copper has a special ability to transform carbon dioxide into valuable chemicals and fuels. But for many years, scientists have struggled to understand how this common metal works as an electrocatalyst, a mechanism that uses energy from electrons to ...
Lower emissions by at least 70% compared to fossil jet fuel: Breakthrough Energy Makes First Catalyst Funding in LanzaJet
Breakthrough Energy announced that its first Catalyst project funding will go to LanzaJet’s Freedom Pines Fuels sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) plant in Soperton, GA in the form of a $50 million grant. Breakthrough Energy Catalyst is a unique program that brings together corporate and ...
In an international research project involving the Technische Universität Ilmenau, scientists have succeeded in developing a sunlight-powered device that converts carbon dioxide directly into usable fuels with an efficiency of over five percent. This brings closer the goal of not only eliminating ...
“I’m excited by the potential of this technology”
New technology developed at the University of Waterloo could make a significant difference in the fight against climate change by affordably converting harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) into fuels and other valuable chemicals on an industrial scale. Outlined in astudypublished in the journal Nature ...
Generation of flavor-active compounds by electrochemical oxidation of limonene
As oranges are peeled, they spray a tangy, citrus scented oil into the air. The main compound in the fragrant mist is limonene, which can be collected from discarded peels and used in flavorings, perfumes and all-purpose cleaners. Now, researchers reporting in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and ...
Researchers from Japan investigate a new safer way to transport and store fuels
Liquid fuels with high energy density are essential in many applications where chemical energy is converted into controlled motion, such as in rockets, gas turbines, boilers, and certain vehicle engines. Besides their combustion characteristics and performance, it is also important to guarantee ...
Discovery brings replacing hydrogen as a fuel cell feedstock one step closer
Turmeric, a spice found in most kitchens, has an extract that could lead to safer, more efficient fuel cells. Researchers at theClemson Nanomaterials Institute (CNI)and their collaborators from theSri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning (SSSIHL)in India discovered a novel way to combine ...
Possibility to produce ethanol on a financially competitive and technically efficient basis
According to the latest assessment report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions is required to limit the consequences of climate change. Producing fuel from renewable sources such as waste wood and straw or renewable electricity would be one ...
Electrocatalyst converts CO2 into multicarbon products
A new electrocatalyst called a-CuTi@Cu converts carbon dioxide (CO2 ) into liquid fuels. As reported by a team of Chinese researchers in the journal Angewandte Chemie, active copper centered on an amorphous copper/titanium alloy produces ethanol, acetone, and n-butanol with high efficiency. Most ...
Circular economy for CO2
To establish a carbon-neutral circular economy in the future, technologies are needed that use carbon dioxide as a raw material. In the form of formate, CO2 can be metabolised by certain bacteria. Acetogens are a group of bacteria that can metabolise formate. For example, they form acetic acid – ...
