Researchers developed new acid-based electrochemical process to convert CO2 emissions

March 15, 2023 |

In Australia, an international team of researchers at the University of Sydney and the University of Toronto has developed a new acid-based electrochemical process for the conversion of CO2 captured from emission sources or directly from air.

The new method, published in Nature Synthesis, differs from previous CO2 conversion methods in that it uses an acidic – not alkaline or neutral – reactive chemical, with the experimental study rendering a twofold improvement in energy efficiency compared to the team’s previous benchmark work, when converting CO2 to multicarbon products such as ethylene and ethanol.
