  1. Renewable electricity-powered carbon dioxide conversion to ethanol for storage and transportation

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Cost-effective electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the atmosphere, is the holy grail of green chemistry. Using only water and electricity as other inputs, ECO2R has been demonstrated to produce ethanol with pure oxygen as a co-product. Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be used in fuel cells, reformed to make hydrogen, or burned in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol produced from air ...
