Researchers Create Revolutionary Catalyst That Can Convert CO2 into Useable Chemicals

Read the full story in R&D Magazine. See also the Rutgers press release about the research, which includes a link to the journal article.

A team of Rutgers University scientists are working to commercialize a new catalyst that can convert carbon dioxide (CO₂) into useful chemicals, an innovation that will reduce the amount of CO₂ emitted into the atmosphere.

The team developed a new family of electrocatalysts that can generate larger molecular weight products of greater value with a higher energy conversion efficiency.

To market and scale up their technology and hopefully reduce dependence on traditional fossil-derived feedstocks, the team started RenewCO₂, a company that develops clean electrochemical processes that convert CO₂ into monomers and other organic chemicals.
