Themed collection Carbon capture, storage or utilisation – Topic Highlight
Towards an accelerated decarbonization of the chemical industry by electrolysis
Electrochemical technologies support the transition towards carbon-neutral chemical manufacturing and we need new approaches to accelerate electrolysis scale-up.
A critical review of technologies, costs, and projects for production of carbon-neutral liquid e-fuels from hydrogen and captured CO2
Hydrogen (H2) production along with CCUS (carbon capture, utilization, and storage) are two key areas for transition to net-zero emission. Carbon-neutral liquid e-fuels produced from H2 and captured CO2 are practical alternatives to fossil fuels.
Electrowetting limits electrochemical CO2 reduction in carbon-free gas diffusion electrodes
Electrowetting leads to flooding of silver-based, carbon-free gas diffusion electrodes for CO2 electrolysis.
Poly(triazine-co-pyrrole)-based conjugated microporous polymers for carbon dioxide capture
Enhancing CO2 capture through conjugated microporous polymers.
Two-dimensional Ti3C2Tx MXene nanosheets for CO2 electroreduction in aqueous electrolytes
Electrochemical conversion of CO2 to C1 and C2+ chemical synthons using a 2D Ti3C2Tx catalyst in benign aqueous electrolytes.
Cation synergy in Sr and Al substituted LaMnO3 during solar thermochemical CO2 splitting
The influence of bond polarity on the thermochemical redox properties of a series of cation substituted perovskite oxygen carriers is reported.
Brute force determination of the optimum pore sizes for CO2 uptake in turbostratic carbons
The relationship between porosity within a given pore size range, and uptake of CO2 as a function of pressure.
Predictive energetic tuning of quinoid O-nucleophiles for the electrochemical capture of carbon dioxide
We use quinone reduction potentials to showcase molecularly tunable CO2 binding strengths for a family of electrochemically generated quinoid molecular sorbents. In our study, we find that CO2 binding stoichiometry varies with CO2 concentration.
CO2 removal and 1.5 °C: what, when, where, and how?
We investigate how different CDR options—afforestation/reforestation (AR), bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), and direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS)—might be deployed to meet the Paris Agreement's CDR objectives.
Upcycling the carbon emissions from the steel industry into chemicals using three metal oxide loops
A new combined chemical looping process makes use of any gas stream containing CO2 and fuel to produce carbon monoxide without external energy input. Carbon monoxide can be used for producing a variety of carbon-based products.
Imidazolium and picolinium-based electrolytes for electrochemical reduction of CO2 at high pressure
Ionic liquid-based aqueous electrolytes with reduced IL content for coupling CO2 capture and electrochemical reduction.
Direct and mild non-hydroxide activation of biomass to carbons with enhanced CO2 storage capacity
Direct activation of biomass, via a simple and lower cost one-step process, with potassium oxalate as a mild and less corrosive agent, yields activated carbon with properties and CO2 uptake comparable or superior to conventionally prepared activated carbons.
