LG Chem announces 50,000 ton Hydrogen project for 2024 with circular CO2

LG Chem announces 50,000 ton Hydrogen project for 2024 with circular CO2

June 20, 2022 |

In South Korea, LG Chem said it will construct a plant in Daesan, Korea, with the capacity to produce 50,000 tons of hydrogen annually by Q2 2024. This plant will be the first LG Chem site to produce pure hydrogen, apart from those earned as off-gases. The new plant employs technology which converts methane to […]

Cambridge University researchers develop low-cost device that captures CO2 while it charges

Cambridge University researchers develop low-cost device that captures CO2 while it charges

June 7, 2022 |

In the UK, researchers at Cambridge University have developed a low-cost device that can selectively capture carbon dioxide gas while it charges. Then, when it discharges, the CO2 can be released in a controlled way and collected to be reused or disposed of responsibly. Designed by researchers from the University of Cambridge, the supercapacitor could […]

Michigan State University researchers find land management practices reduce even more CO2 emissions

Michigan State University researchers find land management practices reduce even more CO2 emissions

June 1, 2022 |

In Michigan, an integrated approach to land management practices in the U.S. can reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere far more than earlier estimates based on separate approaches, Michigan State University researchers say. Their research was published May 31 in the journal Global Change Biology.  Researchers are now finding how combining those practices might reduce […]

Japanese researchers produce formic acid from CO2

Japanese researchers produce formic acid from CO2

May 23, 2022 |

In Japan, photoreduction of CO2 into transportable fuel like formic acid (HCOOH) is a great way of dealing with CO2’s rising levels in the atmosphere. To aid in this mission, a research team from Tokyo Tech chose an easily available iron-based mineral and loaded it onto an alumina support to develop a catalyst that can […]
