Nature Energy Research uses Sustainion® Membrane To Convert CO2 To Ethanol At High Efficiency

Sustanion® membrane ethanol efficiency

The work titled ‘Efficient electrically powered CO2-to-ethanol via suppression of deoxygenation’ was authored by a group authors largely from University of Toronto. Using Sustainion® membrane in conjunction with novel catalysts helped them record an ethanol Faradaic efficiency of ~52% (partialethanol current density ~156 mA cm−2) and an ethanol cathodic energy efficiency of 31%. The setup is shown below. The novel … Read More
