Rational Design of Ceria-Supported Non-Noble Metal Nanoalloys as Catalysts for the Selective Direct Conversion of Methane to Methanol

Project description

Improved conversion of methane to methanol benefits industry, society and the environment

Methane (CH4) is the primary component of natural gas and is emitted during human activities and natural processes. Although it accounts for a relatively small percentage of emissions worldwide, its effects are very potent because it traps tens of times more heat than CO2. Converting CH4 to methanol is an excellent way to both reduce atmospheric levels and produce a key fuel and feedstock. It remains a significant challenge and important area of research thanks to the strength of the carbon-hydrogen bonds and the by-products released. The EU-funded 4lessCH4 project will develop innovative catalysts for efficient and selective conversion of CH4 to methanol with important impact on mitigating climate change.
