Highly efficient and selective catalysts and CO2 sorbentsfor the electrochemical production of methanol from CO2 (CO2 to Methanol)

The objectives of this project are to capture/concentrate CO2 and to convert it to liquid hydrocarbon fuels through electrochemical processes. This project therefore involves the development of stable CO2 capture materials, the identifi cation of suitable electrocatalysts for selective conversion of CO2 to fuels and their development and a lab-scale demonstration of a set-up for combined CO2 sorption and conversion.
