Carbon Dioxide and Methane Conversion to Industrial Chemicals

Description:

Proposals of interest would seek to develop and commercialize processes for efficient carbon dioxide capture from concentrated industrial exhaust sources and pathways for its conversion to value-added industrial chemicals and products resulting in net carbon sequestration on a life cycle analysis. Proposals of interest would also include those with catalytic chemical process technologies for the conversion of methane (from natural gas, landfills, wastewater treatment, etc.) to industrial chemicals; novel catalytic process technologies to directly convert captured carbon dioxide to methanol through non syngas routes, as well as novel catalytic technologies to convert methane directly to methanol and hydrocarbons and value-added chemicals (through non syngas routes). Approaches could include novel biochemical pathways.
