Photoelectrochemical conversion of CO2 to methanol.

Return Photoelectrochemical conversion of CO2 to methanol. 01/03/2021 – 28/02/2025 Researcher: MSc. Michele Del Moro The increasing anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases into the Earth’s atmosphere has caused a deterioration of natural phenomena over the past few years. CO2 is the main component causing this global effect, called climate change. For tackling this effect, new …

Electrochemical conversion of CO2 to formic acid at elevated temperatures to pair with anodic alkane dehydrogenation.

One of the greatest challenges faced by our current generation is lowering the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The electrochemical CO2 reduction (ECR) provides a solution to this problem by utilizing CO2 in combination with renewable energy and convert it to valuable chemicals (here formic acid).

Photoelectrocatalytic reduction of CO2 to methanol

Increasing droughts, storms and floods are notable examples of climate change that many countries face today. To address this imminent threat various agreements by the UN have been developed to deal with the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. CO2, one of the greenhouse gases, contributes significantly to the overall climate problem.
