MIT researchers identify culprit for poor performance of CO2-based fuel conversion

MIT researchers identify culprit for poor performance of CO2-based fuel conversion

January 11, 2022 |

In Massachusetts, if researchers could find a way to chemically convert carbon dioxide into fuels or other products, they might make a major dent in greenhouse gas emissions. But many such processes that have seemed promising in the lab haven’t performed as expected in scaled-up formats that would be suitable for use with a power […]
