Researchers at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and their collaborators have begun a large-scale project demonstrating photovoltaic powered production of hydrogen, which is then used to convert carbon dioxide into methanol.
Plasma catalysis process facilitates conversion of CO2 and CH4 into fuels and chemicals [Registered]
Researchers from the University of Liverpool have made a significant breakthrough in the direct conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) into liquid fuels and chemicals.
Bionic leaf converts carbon dioxide into fuel [Registered]
Researchers at Harvard University have developed a ‘bionic leaf’ that mimics natural photosynthesis, converting water and carbon dioxide into fuel. The system uses solar power to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, then uses bacteria to convert the hydrogen along with atmospheric carbon dioxide into liquid fuels.
Bioengineered bacteria helps produce isopropanol from solar energy [Registered]
They have created a system that uses bacteria (Ralstonia eutropha) to convert solar energy into a liquid fuel. Their work integrates an “artificial leaf,” which uses a catalyst to make sunlight split water into hydrogen and oxygen, with a bacterium engineered to convert carbon dioxide plus hydrogen into the liquid fuel isopropanol.
