Stanford team develops efficient electrochemical cells for CO2 conversion

Green Car Congress

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.

Researchers convert atmospheric CO2 to carbon nanofibers and nanotubes for use as anodes in Li-ion and Na-ion batteries

Green Car Congress

Researchers from George Washington University and Vanderbilt University have demonstrated the conversion of atmospheric CO 2 into carbon nanofibers (CNFs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for use as high-performance anodes in both lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries. STEP is an efficient solar chemical process, based on a synergy of solar thermal and endothermic electrolyses, designed to convert greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into a useful carbon commodity.

Japanese carmakers still ‘most sustainable’

Green Cars News

A focus on tailpipe CO2 emissions has distracted away from the impact of car production, suggests Professor Frank Figge who co-authored the ‘Sustainable Value in Automobile Manufacturing’ study. Professor Figge from Queen’s University Management School said: “Economic crisis, energy crisis, climate crisis and recent global developments have affected the automobile industry like few other sectors.
