US Patent 10,047,046 issued August 14, 2018

US Patent 10,047,046 for a method and system for electrochemical production of formic acid from carbon dioxide was issued on August 14, 2018.

Dioxide Materials has been able to successfully produce high concentrations of formic acid directly from the electrochemical reduction of CO2. This reduces the need for the acid conversion of alkali metal formate salt-based products that are produced using alternative electrochemical cell and process configurations.
