Tech: Re­searchers turn CO2 into clean liq­uid fuel

China Daily - - PAGE TWO -

Re­searchers have de­vel­oped a new method to turn car­bon diox­ide, the main green­house gas, into clean liq­uid fuel such as methanol. The break­through might help mit­i­gate the green­house ef­fect caused by car­bon emis­sions, and pro­mote the de­vel­op­ment of new clean en­er­gies. A re­search team led by Zeng Jie, a pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­sity of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy of China, de­vel­oped a new cat­alyzer with platinum as the raw ma­te­rial. The cat­alyzer can ef­fec­tively con­vert car­bon diox­ide into methanol, which is also a ba­sic raw ma­te­rial of the chem­i­cal in­dus­try. The study was pub­lished in

Na­ture Nan­otech­nol­ogy.
