NETL converts CO2 from chemical buildings to fuel


NETL researchers are using advanced computational tools to repurpose carbon dioxide (CO2) from a waste product into chemical building blocks to manufacturer fuels and a range of other high-value items.

The laboratory’s Computational Materials and Engineering Team is working on the project which hopes to develop CO2 recycling through electrochemistry, a process which can be conducted at near room temperature and ambient pressure using electricity from renewable energy sources. 

In a statement, the laboratory said its researchers will use a variety of cutting-edge experimental and computational techniques to understand and optimise catalysts and open new doors to CO2 conversion.

NETL’s goal is to discover precise catalyst recipes. The project want to know what types of catalysts work best to selectively and efficiently turn CO2 into specific chemical compounds.
