Industrial scale 'photosynthesis' of fuels, a natural way to protect the environment
One great way to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere is to capture it and convert it into other carbon-based chemicals and fuels of high value. CO2 electroreduction, reducing CO2 with electricity, is one of the most promising technologies, particularly when that electricity is produced from renewable energy sources. The EU-funded CF-CO2R project is attacking the challenges presented by current electrocatalysts through a combined campaign of experiments and modelling. Highly efficient electrocatalysts will enable CO2 electroreduction to meet the requirements of industrial implementation with benefits for both the environment and the competitive position of the EU.
