New technique improves conversion of carbon dioxide into liquid fuels

A new approach to improve conversion of CO2 into liquid fuels has been recently highlighted by PHYS.ORG. The technique is developed by Alexis Bell’s group from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) by coating the surface of the copper catalysts with Nafion™ and Sustainion® ionomers, leading to a 250% increase in C2+ production compared to static electrolysis over uncoated copper.
