Atomically Dispersed Bifunctional Catalysts for Reversible Zn-CO2 Batteries

Project description

High-performance zinc–carbon dioxide battery thanks to single-atom catalysts

Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have surpassed levels seen in the entirety of human history. Coupling CO2 utilisation with electrochemical storage is viewed as a promising technology for generating electricity and decreasing harmful gas emissions. The EU-funded ADBCRZB project plans to develop zinc–CO2 batteries using single palladium atoms as a catalyst for the cathode. Scientists will employ operando spectroscopy and conduct simulations to probe the reaction mechanism of catalysts. The project will demonstrate the great potential of single-atom catalysts for CO2 conversion, and it will also offer a significant boost to the development of the relatively new Zn-CO2 battery technology.
