Columbia University engineers make breakthrough in understanding electroreduction of CO2 for conversion to electrofuels

Green Car Congress

Researchers at Columbia University have solved the first piece of the puzzle; they have proved that CO 2 electroreduction begins with one common intermediate, not two as was commonly thought. Electrocatalysis and photocatalysis (artificial photosynthesis) are among the most promising ways to achieve effective storage for renewable energy. CO 2 electroreduction has been capturing the imagination of researchers for more than 150 years because of its similarity to photosynthesis.
