Membrane system converts carbon dioxide into fuel, chemical feedstocks

By Faye Oney / December 1, 2017

A research duo has developed a system for converting CO2 emissions from power plants into fuel for cars, trucks, and planes. Their process could also provide an additional revenue stream to offset costs.

First generation of Gas2 ceramic membranes before catalytic dressings are applied. Credit: Gas2. Processes for turning natural gas-to-liquid fuels have been around for about 200 years, but large-scale adoption of GTL technologies has languished, primarily because of relatively high investment costs in a market where prices tend to fluctuate from year to year. Interest, however,…

Green energy from greenhouse gases: A novel paradigm in mitigating global warming

By / February 16, 2009

(the following is a guest post from Abdul-Majeed Azad, associate professor, chemical engineering, University of Toledo) As we know, the ultimate chemical fate of the conventional fossil fuel combustion is always CO2 and H2O, two well-known greenhouse gases responsible for contributing considerably to the global warming. In 2007 the global level of CO2 was 30…
