Turning carbon dioxide into liquid fuel

New electrocatalyst efficiently converts carbon dioxide into ethanol

07-Aug-2020

Catalysts speed up chemical reactions and form the backbone of many industrial processes. For example, they are essential in transforming heavy oil into gasoline or jet fuel. Today, catalysts are involved in over 80 percent of all manufactured products. A research team, led by the U.S. Department ...

'Blinking" crystals may convert CO2 into fuels

Unusual nanoparticles could could be useful for environmental cleanups, sensors, electronic devices and solar cells

21-Jul-2020

Imagine tiny crystals that "blink" like fireflies and can convert carbon dioxide, a key cause of climate change, into fuels. A Rutgers-led team has created ultra-small titanium dioxide crystals that exhibit unusual "blinking" behavior and may help to produce methane and other fuels, according to ...

Development of sustainable marine fuels

EU research project IDEALFUEL has started

29-Jun-2020

In an EU-funded research project, an international consortium aims to develop new production methods for sustainable marine fuels to replace heavy fuel oils in shipping. The use of heavy fuel oils (HFOs) contributes to global warming due to the fossil origin of these fuels and, moreover, ...

Biofuel for ships

Diesel and gasoline sourced from renewables produces a lot less greenhouse gas

07-May-2020

The combustion of conventional fossil fuels accounts for a large share of global CO2 emissions. A great deal of criticism is levelled against cruise and merchant ships for polluting the environment with sooty waste gas and toxic heavy fuels. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for ...

Effective way to obtain fuel for hydrogen engines

24-Feb-2020

One of the most promising alternative energy sources is hydrogen, which can be extracted from water and air. A catalyst is needed for a chemical process that releases hydrogen from an H2O molecule. It can be made, for example, from platinum, or from molybdenum. But these are quite expensive ...
