University of Toronto spinoff converts CO2 into ethylene via electrocatalyst

March 9, 2022 |

In Canada, University of Toronto spinoff CERT Systems uses water and electricity to turn waste CO2 into ethylene and other carbon-based fuels using an electrocatalyst operating at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. The catalyst is able to break and reform CO2 into larger, valuable molecules with electricity and protons from water. The process allows CERT […]
