Scientists unveil least costly carbon capture system to date

New system efficiently captures CO₂ and converts it into one of the world’s most widely used chemicals


The need for technology that can capture, remove and repurpose carbon dioxide grows stronger with every CO2molecule that reaches Earth’s atmosphere. To meet that need, scientists at the Department of Energy’sPacific Northwest National Laboratoryhave cleared a new milestone in their efforts to ...

Startup M2X Energy partners with UCF to convert greenhouse gases into low-carbon methanol

Partnership develops technology to convert methane gas, a common by-product of oil production, into methanol


Most people realize the climate impacts of carbon dioxide. Not many people, however, know that methane, the main component of natural gas, is much more potent than carbon dioxide. While methane doesn’t remain in the atmosphere as long as CO2 (which can linger for thousands of years), it is 84 ...

Space Telescope unveils the dark side of pre-stellar ice chemistry

Chameleon I hides a wealth of frozen molecules


The discovery of diverse ices in the darkest, coldest regions of a molecular cloud measured to date has been announced by an international team of astronomers using the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope. This result allows astronomers to examine the simple icy molecules that will be ...

Maersk backs C 1 to make zero-carbon shipping a reality faster – and cheaper

Berlin-based start-up found a way to mass-produce green methanol at a competitive price


The Climate tech start-upC1 has raised growth capital from Maersk Growth, the Venture Capital Arm of A. P. Møller – Maersk to faster scale their ultra-efficient catalysis, which will enable the mass production of green methanol without the usual premium paid for sustainably produced methanol. ...

From a greenhouse gas to an industrial raw material


Rather than being released into the atmosphere and exacerbating the problem of climate change, CO2 can also be used as a raw material for substances required in industrial processes, such as formic acid or methanol. The conversion of CO2 has already been investigated in detail in laboratory ...

Fraunhofer ISE Demonstrates First Long-Term Methanol Synthesis from Blast Furnace Gas in a Miniplant

Process Optimization with the Digital Twin


Methanol plays an important role for industry as a commodity chemical and is presently considered one of the key energy carriers in the rising hydrogen economy. However, conventional methanol production from coal and natural gas generates large amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. With the ...

Report lays out future scenarios for global chemical industry

Calls on sector to change, lead way to enable a sustainable global economy


A new report sends a dire warning to the chemical industry, which it says is on track for a future global warming scenario with catastrophic consequences, and sets out tangible, credible pathways for the sector to become an enabler of a sustainable global economy by 2050, while overseeing ...

Direct conversion of carbon dioxide into bulk chemicals and liquid fuels


High-efficiency utilization of CO2 facilitates the reduction of CO2 concentration in the global atmosphere and hence the alleviation of the greenhouse effect. The chemical utilization of CO2, which refers to converting CO2 into value-added chemicals and liquid fuels, has a distinct and direct CO2 ...

Brazilian scientists reveal method of converting methane gas into liquid methanol

The conversion took place under ambient temperature and pressure conditions, which could enable methane, a potent greenhouse gas, to be used to produce fuel


A group of researchers has succeeded in converting methane into methanol using light and dispersed transition metals such as copper in a process known as photo-oxidation. The reaction was the best obtained to date for conversion of methane gas into liquid fuel under ambient conditions of ...

Caught in the act: Key chemical intermediates in pollutant-to-fuel reaction identified

Such work will help convert an atmospheric pollutant into fuel for vehicles, and chemical feedstocks for industry


Researchers from the University of Tsukuba and collaborating partners experimentally measured hydrogenation of metal-adsorbed formate. This development will facilitate practical conversion of carbon dioxide pollutant into methanol fuel. Carbon dioxide pollution continues to change the global ...
