EVENT:

Carbon-neutral liquid fuel from sunlight, air, and water
Conferences & Talks

Gordon Research Conference, Renewable Energy: Solar Fuels

1 February 2009 - 6 February 2009
Four Points Sheraton / Holiday Inn Express, Ventura, California

 

description

We propose a system that produces carbon-neutral liquid fuel using only sunlight, air, and water.  Our proposed system involves electrochemical capture and separation of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and generation of hydrogen gas via the electrolysis of water using photovoltaic-generated electricity.  The hydrogen is used to catalytically hydrogenate the captured carbon dioxide to generate methanol or other liquid fuels using well-established methods.  We will discuss our experimental progress toward energy-efficient electrochemical CO2 separation from the atmosphere.
