Stanford team develops efficient electrochemical cells for CO2 conversion

CO 2 capture from emission sources is an attractive option for mitigating climate change, but it is an expensive process that harvests a product without commercial value. The electrochemical cells created by Kanan and his team combat these inefficiencies with a modified design that produces a concentrated stream of ethylene gas and a sodium acetate solution 1,000 times more concentrated than product obtained with previous cells.
