New research breaks barriers to CO2 utilisation for e-fuels


A pair of innovative methods designed to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) and glycerol into value-added materials with uses in sectors such as liquid hydrogen storage has been developed by a researcher from the University of Alberta, Canada.

The two processes – which will be tested on a larger scale for industry-level viability – could help decarbonise a range of sectors including automotive, electronic, clothing, adhesives, packaging, solvents and pharmaceuticals.

In addition to its industrial uses, methanol holds promise as a method of transporting and storing hydrogen in liquid form.
