New project is looking at carbon capture to make the cement industry climate-neutral

February 20, 2022 |

In Germany, researchers in the newly launched joint project “CO 2 -Syn” are looking for ways to capture and convert the greenhouse gas CO2 into starting materials, for example to produce basic chemicals such as olefins and higher alcohols, for the cement industry where carbon dioxide is an unavoidable by-product: It is produced when calcium […]

A stable copper catalyst for CO2 conversion

A stable copper catalyst for CO2 conversion

March 28, 2021 |

In Germany, researchers at RUB and the University of Duisburg-Essen developed a new catalyst for converting carbon dioxide into chemicals or fuels. They optimized already available copper catalysts in order to improve their selectivity and long-term stability. The greenhouse gas CO2 can be converted into larger carbon compounds that can be used as basic chemicals […]
