Decouple Electrochemical Reduction of Carbon Dioxide to High Value Products

Project description

Releasing the potential of electrochemical reduction of CO2

Electrochemical CO2 reduction is a promising way of mitigating the impact of CO2 emissions. The process requires mild reaction conditions, converts CO2 into other valuable chemicals and is easily integrated into renewable electricity generation. However, it has failed to live up to expectations over the last few decades of development, largely due to challenges with catalysis. The EU-funded DeCO-HVP project plans to address this with a pioneering approach: the use of electron-donating mediators generated separately from the catalysed chemical reduction of CO2. This decoupling will allow the electrolyte to become the electrode, with bimetallic catalysts leading to high-value products.
