Tailoring the electrode-enzyme interface for efficient bioelectrochemical CO2 reduction by formate dehydrogenase

Project description

Optimising the electrode-enzyme interface for efficient bioelectrochemical CO2 reduction

Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in our atmosphere are associated with fossil fuel combustion, and as such, they are a major driver of climate change. Transitioning to cleaner forms of energy is critical, but it takes time. Capturing and converting CO2 before it is released is an excellent short- and mid-term solution. Fortunately, CO2 is an important feedstock for chemical fuels. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the BERCO2 project is optimising the enzyme-electrode interface to be used for efficient and green bioelectrochemical CO2 reduction using the bacterial enzyme formate dehydrogenase. The interface will be implemented in an innovative biofuel cell producing electricity from CO2 and molecular hydrogen.
