One man’s junk, another man’s treasure? Looking at carbon monoxide and LanzaTech

July 12, 2015 |

What’s LanzaTech all about? How does it work and why? Here are answers for your questions. Why don’t steel mills generate power for the grid — why make fuels instead of steam? “The fact that many of these industrial facilities could be making electricity now, but are not, tells the story,” LanzaTech CEO Jennifer Holmgren […]

Junk or treasure? Looking at carbon monoxide and LanzaTech

October 15, 2014 |

A blogger levels an explosive set of charges at LanzaTech: “Khosla’s latest gangrene venture”, “thermodynamic junk”, “gangrene fake company”. Alleges that US Secretaries of Energy Moniz, Chu and Bodman were “bought out by special interests”. Why? What’s going on? We lay out the complete story, and look at the data, as LanzaTech responds.  In a note regarding LanzaTech circulated […]

Stanford researchers produce ethanol straight from carbon monoxide gas

Stanford researchers produce ethanol straight from carbon monoxide gas

April 9, 2014 |

In California, Stanford University scientists have found a new, highly efficient way to produce liquid ethanol from carbon monoxide gas. This promising discovery could provide an eco-friendly alternative to conventional ethanol production from corn and other crops, say the scientists. Their results are published in the April 9 advanced online edition of the journal Nature.

Carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide transfer optimized by researchers

Carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide transfer optimized by researchers

October 9, 2011 |

In Illinois, researchers have found a way to convert carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide using an ionic liquid as a co-catalyst, reducing the amount of electrical energy required.  A research team at the University of Illinois worked with researchers at Dioxide Materials, using an electrochemical cell as a flow reactor, which separated the oxygen output […]

Tomorrow arriving today: 5 technology platforms to watch for the 2020s that are materially advancing now, despite COVID-19

August 10, 2020 |

I know, we all wish that 2020 could be a do-over, and that come January 1st the clocks would just re-set to 1/1/2020 and we could do 2020 all over again. It’s been that messy and miserable the world over. Nevertheless, progress in the advanced bioeconomy was strong as was evident at ABLC 2020. And, […]

Letter to the Advanced Bioeconomy: Advance off the Beach

July 27, 2020 |

There was always going to be a point when the advanced bioeconomy reached the end of the “R&D years” and transitioned into “the years of deployment”, and if you read the Biden plan here or the latest pushback from the bioeconomy here against the alleged misdeeds of the Trump Administration, you might realize that we have […]

DTU researchers combine two technologies to get more biofuel from biomass

DTU researchers combine two technologies to get more biofuel from biomass

July 15, 2020 |

In Denmark, researchers have succeeded in combining two known technologies so that more biofuel can be produced from the same amount of biomass. In the project led by DTU, it is the combination of thermal gasification of biomass and electrolysis that is utilized for the production of biofuel. An electrolysis cell (solid oxide electrolysis cell, […]

University of New South Wales researchers develop technology to produce chemical intermediates from CO

June 29, 2020 |

In Australia, chemical engineers from UNSW Sydney have developed new technology that helps convert harmful carbon dioxide emissions into chemical building blocks to make useful industrial products like fuel and plastics. And if adopted on a large scale, the process could give the world breathing space as it transitions towards a green economy. The researchers, […]
