Co-electrolysis of CO2 and H2O for the production of biofuels
Source : greencarcongress.com
Researchers at Columbia University’s Lenfest Center for Sustainable Energy, in collaboration with Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, DTU, are investigating the high-temperature co-electrolysis of CO2 and H2O using solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) to produce a syngas for conversion into liquid hydrocarbon fuels. The Columbia/Risø team currently has a paper in press in the journal Solid State Ionics describing their experimental results on performance and durability of the solid oxide cells. In May, the Lenfest Center and Risø DTU hosted a one-day conference — "Sustainable Fuels from CO2, H2O, and Carbon-Free Energy" — addressing technologies that can be used to recycle CO2 into carbon-neutral liquid hydrocarbon fuels using renewable or nuclear energy. The co-electrolysis process was featured in several of the talks.
