Reactor turns greenhouse gas into pure liquid fuel

An electrocatalysis reactor built at Rice University, U.S. recycles carbon dioxide to produce pure liquid fuel solutions using electricity. The scientists hope it will become an efficient and profitable way to reuse the greenhouse gas and keep it out of the atmosphere.

Scientists turn carbon dioxide back into coal

Scientists have harnessed liquid metals to turn carbon dioxide back into solid coal, in research that offers an alternative pathway for safely and permanently removing the greenhouse gas from our atmosphere.

Artificial Leaves Grab Carbon Dioxide from Air

Researchers have proposed a design solution that could bring artificial leaves out of the lab and into the environment. Their improved leaf would be at least 10 times more efficient than natural leaves at converting carbon dioxide to fuel.

Scientists turn carbon emissions into usable energy

A recent study has developed a system that produces electricity and hydrogen while eliminating carbon dioxide. This system has shown stability by operating for more than 1,000 hours without damage to electrodes.

Transforming carbon dioxide into industrial fuels

US researchers have developed an improved system to use renewable electricity to reduce carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide.

Company that sucks CO2 from air announces a new plant

Swiss company has announced the opening of a new plant in Italy that will collect carbon dioxide from the air and pair it with hydrogen to make methane fuel that would add little or no CO2 to the atmosphere.

New catalyst upgrades CO2 into renewable hydrocarbons

University of Toronto engineering team designs most efficient and stable process for converting climate-warming carbon dioxide into a key chemical building block.

New 'supercatalyst' to recycle carbon dioxide and methane

Engineers have developed a new and cost-effective catalyst to recycle two of the main causes behind climate change -- carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4).

Breakthrough in direct activation of CO2 and CH4 into liquid fuels and chemicals

Researchers have made a significant breakthrough in the direct conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) into liquid fuels and chemicals which could help industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Splitting Carbon Dioxide Could Lead to a New Source of Clean Fuel

Researchers in Switzerland have developed a method for splitting carbon dioxide using solar energy, which could help provide a way to turn the greenhouse gas into fuel.

Breakthrough technology turns coal plant CO2 into baking soda

At one coal-fired power plant in southern India, Carbon Clean Solutions is capturing CO2 and turning it into baking powder for the first time at a large-scale industrial operation.

Graphene quantum dots hold promise in reducing waste CO2

Graphene quantum dots may offer a simple way to recycle waste carbon dioxide into valuable fuel rather than release it into the atmosphere.

Engineered Bacteria Uses Sunlight to Turn CO2 Emissions into Methane

Scientists have engineered a bacterium that can take carbon dioxide from the air and turn it into fuel in a single enzymatic step.

Scientists solve puzzle of converting gaseous carbon dioxide to fuel

Scientists believe they've found a way to convert all these emissions into energy-rich fuel in a carbon-neutral cycle that uses a very abundant natural resource: silicon.
