It will extend our capabilities beyond catalytic conversion of biomass. Spun out from Princeton University in 2008, Liquid Light has invested more than US$35 million on low-energy electrochemistry technologies to convert CO 2 to major chemicals. Renewable chemicals company Avantium has acquired the assets of Liquid Light. Liquid Light has developed proprietary process technology to make major chemicals from low-cost, globally-abundant carbon dioxide.
